Developmental edits are the first edit writers skip, but the first thing mentioned in reviews. If your story feels weak, your opening isn’t strong enough to hook readers, your plot goes haywire or your characters feel like cardboard—you need a dev edit. Join developmental editor Jodi Henley as we work through four easy, reusable worksheets to identify and fix the potential problems in your story. Two weeks of intensive, personalized one on one feedback as we set up for Nano, and one month of dedicated one on one feedback and support as you get your words done. Because each story is different, some worksheets might not apply.

Worksheet 1 Taking a step back. How to use developmental edits.

Worksheet 2: Character problems and fixes

Worksheet 3: Plot problems and fixes

Worksheet 4: Strong openings, a tight through-line.

Prerequisite: A story idea and basic plot, A WIP that isn't working, or an existing story with issues.
Class Format
Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.

The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
