Utilizing Jennie Nash's step-by-step revision project plan, you will practice your self-editing skills on one chapter of your novel so you can feel confident about moving forward with the whole thing. You’ll begin by considering a book you didn’t love and cultivating the revision mindset. After watching Jennie’s 90-minute video lesson on her revision process, you’ll go through deep dive lessons on the one-page book summary, the two-tier outline, the chapter audit, and the manuscript audit. Worksheets with specific revision tools such as the Stoplight Strategy help you create an actionable plan, and can be reused for future manuscripts. You’ll also find three hours of bonus videos including Jennie’s Four Perspectives Theory of Revising presentation, and two “behind the scenes” interviews with writers who have taken this course. How to Revise a Novel is self-paced and can be taken anytime.

"First of all, do it! Because everything is scary. I mean at some point, everything is scary. But, it's so worth it."
