A mini-version of the longer month-long Revision class. Online only class that offers hands-on help revising a manuscript. We will work on chunks at a time, with feedback and critiquing from New York Times bestselling author Shirley Jump. The class covers plot, character, and show, not tell, but offers less homework and feedback than the month-long class. Students work on shorter segments for homework. Students will gain the tools they need to write stronger and revise better.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump has written more than 50 novels for Berkley, Harlequin, Entangled, and Kensington books. A frequent speaker both in the United States and abroad, Shirley’s diverse career has spanned two decades. She has won numerous awards, and she’s been nominated multiple times for the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice award. The first book in her series with Berkley, The Sweetheart Bargain, recently received a Top Pic from Romantic Times.
Check out the BUZZ about Shirley Jump’s novels:
“Sweet is the word for this anthology from four top Kensington writers…Jump’s office romance gives the collection a kick, with fiery writing.” — Publishers Weekly
4 1/2 Stars, “With Jump’s trademark comedic touch, readers are treated to a well-crafted story about what it means to come home to face yourself and your past. The main characters are sympathetic and intelligent, and the narrative is constantly smooth and compelling.” — Romantic Times Book Reviews
You will need a pair of track shoes for Shirley Jump's two-week Intensive On Revision class, but when you reach the finish line, she will have packed your brain full of new ideas and improved your writing. Filled with gold nuggets, her handout sheets are to be saved and read and reread. They feel like chapters to an MFA textbook. Her advice, critiques, and handouts are blue-ribbon all the way.
