Make your writing soar


Coaching with Margie Lawson


Expanding time is a brilliant tool that most writers don’t empower as much as they could. An expanded time passage that’s written well locks the reader in the POV character’s emotions. Writers can use those strong emotions to keep the reader immersed in the story from one high emotion scene to the next.

Learning what elements to include and deep edit analyzing helps you learn how to expand time and add power. But wouldn’t it be great to have Margie’s help with your expanded time passages?

You can schedule a one-on-one session with Margie to deep edit your expanded time passages. These private Zoom sessions are $50/hour. They’re scheduled at times that work for writers all over the world.

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.

I just had my first coaching session with Margie, and it was mind-blowing. Having done several of her courses, I can honestly say she has helped take my writing to the next level. The opportunity to have coaching sessions with her is an author's dream. I feel so privileged for this chance to learn how to enhance my creativity and amplify my craft. I absolutely recommend these sessions as a must-have in your career.

Working one-on-one with Margie is where editing magic happens. Under Margie’s brilliant and thorough line-by-line guidance, you’ll watch your scenes transform. Not-quite-there or good-enough lines transmute to twenty-carat gold. Margie will show you where to tighten, where to expand, where to shine the spotlight, how to simplify or amplify. Her expert eye and cadence ear catch all those weak or lazy phrases, the unintended repetitions, the unclear passages, the overwritten rhetoric. She’s quick to praise where praise is due, and her humour and warm enthusiasm makes editing fun, even when you’re digging deep to find that writing gold.

Margie is not only an editing maestro, she’s an inspirational teacher. The lessons you’ll learn will stay with you and shape your future work. Expect to exercise your brain cells. Expect to laugh a lot. Expect an immensely enjoyable and massively rewarding experience.

Your writing, and your readers, will thank you.
