About This Class

Welcome Writer! Finished a new piece of writing, or do you have one hiding in a drawer? Did you just finish a writing boot camp? So now you need to edit.

You may want to publish it but a little voice tells you it's not ready yet. Here's how to go pro and edit your work like a boss. Run your piece through these 3 key editing stages and watch it shine like a star. 

It's the thinking that counts. When you know what you're looking for, you can see how to fix things. So run through the method and tell me you don't have a tighter sparklier piece at the end of it!

This method is also useful for copywriters, bloggers and blogging, and journalists, travel bloggers, consumer and lifestyle and life coach writers, to help you develop an engaging style to keep your readers on the page. Try it!

Oh, and remember to post up your project. We'd love to see it.

Valuable information that clarifies the forms and stages of editing. I learned a lot. Designing a personal editing process that incorporates each of the types of editing is a great idea.

About My Classes

My mission is to help you feel more confident about your writing. I'm not here to tell you whether your writing is "good" or "bad", but to help you conquer doubt, improve your creativity. 

My longer classes include practical advice and writing tools.

My shorter classes are about getting you to think, peel back the layers, think out of the box, and any other cliché you'd like to add. I want to help you sharpen your focus, strengthen your resolve and ask questions like "Why do they do it like this?", "What made this writer successful?" 

If you have a question you'd like answered in a class, please post it up in a discussion. 

You will only find classes by me on Skillshare. I don't publish to other platforms, so make sure you get your Premium Membership. Ping the @Free_Skillshare twitter account, and keep checking in to Skillshare free classes by all teachers. You'll get the special deal: 3 months for 99c. How's that for a bargain?
