YOUR PERSONAL EDITOR
One of the fastest ways to jump start your writing career is to hire an editor to get the “skinny” on what’s working in your writing and what is not. An editor may correct your grammar, spelling, and punctuation—explain the how’s and why’s of sentence structure, pacing, plot and character development, and hooks—and, in the case of this course, accelerate your learning curve by giving you individualized instruction on how to improve your writing. You will submit an initial 10 pages and the editor will work through it, marking potential changes through Word’s “track changes” function, and letting you know the reasons for the suggested changes. The actual number of pages edited will depend on the depth of changes required, so prepare to submit rewrites and additional material.
Most professional editors charge $50 to $100 per hour, so this course, at $110 for four weeks with a minimum guarantee of 4 hours applied to your work, is a bargain. Because of the intense, personal nature of this course, enrollment is limited.
