How to Review Your Novel Like a Developmental Editor

All Levels | In this class, you’ll learn how a professional developmental editor looks at the “big picture” of a novel—including plot, characterization, setting, pacing, and craft—and how to apply that same perspective to your own work. We’ll explore specific questions you can ask as you’re re-reading your work, exercises to help you see your work from a fresh perspective, common issues that trip up writers, and a few tips and tricks to help you tackle revisions.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
