Lori’s class gave me the opportunity to focus on a specific chapter of my book throughout the course of a month. She gave my work an intense overhaul and what came out was a much tighter, cohesive piece. She gave me honest and serious critiques while at the same time encouraging my work. She is the perfect mix of tough and kind. This class was the beginning of our working relationship, and showed me what a good editor is really worth. I couldn’t recommend this class more.
