Virtual Immersion Master Classes!

COVID Update: Immersion Master Classes are going virtual. Yep, virtual. Lots of changes due to COVID. These Virtual Immersions are limited to six writers. They’ll be two days long with two big topics. And one on one deep editing with Margie too. 

Two days. Two big topics. Six writers. Seven or eight if it's a group of friends, and she'll do one-on-ones with two of them the day after Immersion is over.

Margie Lawson's Immersion Master Classes will help you transform your manuscript into a page-turner!

In the last eleven years Margie has taught over 140 Immersion Master Classes.

Participants analyze and apply Deep Editing strategies to their scenes in layers, with hands-on direction and Deep Editing critique from Margie.

No travel. No airfare. Just two days with you, your manuscript, a small group of committed authors, and Margie!

NOTE: all dates and times are in Margie Time (US Mountain Time)

    Margie's Immersions are Marvelous

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Take Margie's classes --as I have- and expand your mind to dig deep for extraordinary sparkly details to power-boom your pages.
    Take her Immersions -I just completed my first - and that expansion grows exponentially as you discover and take advantage of more opportunities to empower the visuals and emotions on your pages.
    In Immersions (as in classes) Margie gives attention to each participant. She offers many opportunities within group time for us to share Deep Edits, insights and ideas. In my Immersion, we all came away brimming with ideas to power up our respective WiPs--whether we already have many published books to our credit or are loping along toward finishing our first manuscript.
    I am already happily anticipating my next Immersion--and the next and the next.
    Because I have so many WiPs I want to make sparkle on the page.

    I've taken three Virtual Immersions: Immersion, Faces & Viscerals and Deep Edits. Each one was Margie powerful. Each one amped up my writing. Each one left me wanting more! Cant wait for the next one.

    Get Ready to prod and poke your prose until it's truly polished. Even though I'm a (in house) Immersion Grad, I needed a fresh push and I knew Margie would give it to me--and boy didn't she ever. The small class size and Margie's natural warmth really helped to personalize this online virtual course. And the information--what can I say, as always with Margie's courses it was packed with useful writing advice and examples to show us the way to use that advice. There is so much in this course you finish up exhausted but also exhilarated and ready to write.

    If you want to put the 'wow' factor, or the OMG in your novels, this is the place to learn how. Margie's classes take you from decent to excellent with her EDITS system, Visceral Response, Body Language, and Dialogue tags. Amazing how simple changes that aren't always easily seen can take you from plain to outstanding. Thank you Margie for teaching me how to be that writer I knew I could be but didn't know how to get there.

    I am an Immersion Grad. I've been waiting what feels like a lifetime to say those words. Margie's classes are top of the line when it comes to craft and understanding writing on a psychological level. What immersion does is reinforce those ideas and principles and give you secret little tips and tricks on how to implement them in your everyday writing. Of course, getting some one on one time with the master is the real highlight. Margie is thorough and analytical, without hindering voice or trying to rewrite your words. Her ideas are forthright, and sometimes abstract, but always make your work more powerful. I cannot recommend doing an Immersion Master Class enough.
