Workshops

I offer two classes twice a year through the Editorial Freelancers Association. They're open to writers, editors, members, and nonmembers, and I would love to see you in class! To learn when I'll be teaching next, sign up for Hellos from Heidi below

Intro to Editing Childrens Books.png
Book Mapping for Writers and Editors.png

This five-week class is designed for editors who are interested in working on children’s books but aren’t sure how to get started. We cover elements like plot, character, theme, and leveling, plus how to find clients and understand the children's book market. It's a great place to connect with other editors and expand your skills. You can check out the syllabus here

A book map is an overview of a book that helps writers and editors analyze a manuscript, chapter by chapter and scene by scene. This four-week class is a powerful way to get the distance you need to see a book the way a reader will and edit a book at any stage of the creative process. Study the syllabus here to see if the class is a good fit for you.

This was such a great class! I learned a lot and have applied it to manuscripts. Love it!
