Make Endings Pop! Deep Editing Style

You know chapter endings and the end of your book are critical. Strong chapter endings entice your reader to keep reading. And a strong ending for your novel entices your reader to buy your other books.

  • Don’t settle for nice.
  • Don’t settle for predictable.
  • Don’t settle for less than Wow!

What you’ll learn in this power-packed class:

  1. Elements of all strong endings.
  2. How to tap your reader’s emotions.
  3. My 18 Point Checklist for Endings.
  4. Strategies for genre-specific endings.
  5. How to find your perfect chapter ending.
  6. Drama and trauma, hooks and cliff-hangers.
  7. Rules for endings, when to break them and why.
  8. Book-ending endings and twelve other categories of endings.
  9. Which rhetorical devices pick up pace and add power to endings.
  10. How to deep edit and use The EDITS System to empower endings.

If you're a Margie-Grad, you may know most of my deep editing techniques. In this class you'll learn how to pull them together and make your endings carry amazing power.

Join me in this interactive class. We’ll analyze lots of chapter and novel endings from different genres and see what makes them work.

PLUS -- I’ll deep edit three of your chapter endings. And if you’ve finished your first draft, I’ll deep edit your final ending too.

I can't wait to dive into this class!


Margie Lawson

Margie Lawson left a career in psychology to focus on her true passion—helping writers make their stories, characters, and words strong. Tired of the same old writing rules and tools? Try something new.

Using a psychologically based, deep-editing approach, Margie teaches writers how to bring emotion to the page. Emotion equals power. And power not only grabs readers, it holds onto them until the end. Many Margie grads have gone on to win awards, find agents, sign with publishers, and hit bestseller lists.

As an international presenter, Margie has taught over 150 full day master classes in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and France, as well as multi-day intensives on cruise ships in the Caribbean. Pre-COVID, she taught 5-day Immersion Master Classes across the U.S. and Canada and in seven cities in Australia too.

COVID Update: Immersion Master Classes are now virtual, taught through Zoom. Virtual Immersion classes are limited to six writers. They're two days long with two big topics--and as always, writers get one on one deep editing with Margie.

She also founded Lawson Writer's Academy, where you’ll find over 30 instructors teaching online courses through her website. To learn more, sign up for Margie’s newsletter.
