book editor and writing coach

Ready to polish more than just your book’s opening?

Remodel 5 Key Scenes within any novel or short story manuscript in a four-week fiction intensive for writers ready to turn works-in-progress into books with polish. This dynamic mix of presentation, take-home tools, and in-class workshopping is designed to empower writers to refine current projects. Dramatize your protagonist’s deeper yearning, bring the broken world to life, infuse black moments and dialogue with subtext and resonance, and master the two-part climax every writer must understand.

Key scenes will be modeled on successful examples from both popular and literary genres, and participants are encouraged to bring in examples from a favorite book for discussion.

Details and registration can be found at Arizona State University’s Piper Writers Studio.
