  Enroll in Course
 

Are you struggling to make your first

Do you survive the slushpile only to receive personal rejections saying things like

"I just didn't quite connect"

or

"the ending wasn't satisfying"?

Are your stories selling consistently at a semi-pro level,

but you can't seem to break through into the top magazines?

Do you have stories that feel off but you can't quite put a finger on why that is?


 

It's time to learn better editing. Transform your manuscripts into

ready for submission.

My writing output has quadrupled since I’ve started this program!

I've learnt to foreshadow more over the past month...I need to develop the characters more. There needs to be more reason to care for the characters, especially when they're under threat.

As a primarily self-taught writer, I know there are some skills that are almost impossible to learn on your own.

Editing is the toughest. But it's a skill you can learn.

So bring your dirty, grubby old stories and leave with them shined and ready to submit.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
What's the difference between buying just this course and buying a membership?
Well, I'm glad you asked. If you only buy this course, you only have access to...this course. But if you pay a few dollars more, you get access to all the group courses on my site. And, even better, you get continued access to any group classes I post in the future. So let's say I publish a course on How to Use Genre Expectations to Make Your Story Stronger. If you've only published this one course, you'll have to pay again for the Genre course. If you've paid for the membership, the Genre course is included.
Should I buy the one-month membership? Or the twelve-month?
It's cheaper to buy the twelve-month membership. I've taken a considerable chunk off the price so you end up getting four months FREE. And hey, who doesn't like free? The other good part of a year's membership is that you get all the courses added during the entire year. If you only buy a month's membership, yes, you'll have access to all the courses on the site right now and those added during your month, but you won't have access to anything added after your month is up.
Will you critique my stories?
The short answer is yes. The long answer is how you get access to me. I'm in and out of the forums as much as I can, but there are hundreds of students and only one of me. If you want a story critique, you'll have to go here: https://writeandsellshortfiction.teachable.com/p/manuscript-critique-service Sign up for a manuscript critique. That will ensure that I can give your story the attention that it needs. Your success is important to me.

Can I email you?
The short answer is yes. But again, I have hundreds of students, and while I try to get back to everyone as quickly as I can, if you have more than a quick question about how the course works or if you need feedback about your story or your career, you should consider signing up for either personalized coaching, small group critiquing, or a manuscript critique.
What if I want to work one-on-one with you?
That's my preferred way to work with students. It gives me a chance to understand your goals, your journey, and even your insecurities. I've been where you are -- struggling to sell stories that are immensely personal -- and looking for someone to show me the ropes of a complicated and overwhelming business. I can only take a few more personal students. My schedule is filling up far more quickly than I ever imagined. But I'll read and critique your manuscripts, watch for markets & submission calls that fit your works-in-progress, help you submit, & hold you hand through the process. If you're interested, head here: https://writeandsellshortfiction.teachable.com/p/individualized-training-for-writers
I'm looking for a critique group, but I'd like your feedback as well. What do I do?
Why, join my small group critique sessions, of course! Warning: this group is limited to six students so sign up now if you're interested. You don't want to end up on a waiting list with a story burning a hole in your proverbial pocket! I run a small group critique session that exchanges manuscripts once a week. I throw in my feedback as well. You'll practice giving and receiving professional feedback just the way you're learning in this course. It's an invaluable skill to have as a professional writer. Here's the link: https://writeandsellshortfiction.teachable.com/p/individualized-training-for-writers
What if I want to self-publish?
There's a course for that as well. Kindle Publishing 101 I'll walk you through the in's and out's of how to get your manuscript ready for Amazon, formatted, and uploaded. It's not as easy as it looks, but never fear, you can definitely do it. https://writeandsellshortfiction.teachable.com/p/kindle-publishing
