Note from Margie:
I invited Becky Rawnsley to teach my Big Three courses:
— Empowering Characters’ Emotions
— Deep Editing, Rhetorical Devices, and Beyond
— Writing Body Language and Dialogue Cues Like a Psychologist
I bet my unexpected invitation gave her a visceral response.
Becky learned my deep editing techniques well. She applies them well. She teaches them well too.
Her deep editing expertise and her easy-going style impressed me. I’m proud that she’s teaching these courses I developed.
Dive in. You’ll learn, learn, learn.

Becky Rawnsley is a physical therapist from the UK. She started writing as a hobby some twenty years ago, but realized if she was ever going to get off the slush-pile and onto the shelves, she needed help. Hunting for answers, she stumbled across Margie’s website and struck writing-gold.
Becky is now a multi-Margie, multi-LWA and Immersion grad, and has discovered a passion for deepening her understanding of writing craft. Her work now regularly finals in contests. She is keen to share the magic of Margie’s Big Three courses to help fellow writers bring their work to the next level—and beyond!
