Virtual Immersion Master Classes!

Immersion Master Classes are going virtual. In-person or virtual immersions. Two awesome options to do an intensive class with Margie.

Virtual Immersions are limited to six writers. Two full days or four half-days. And one on one deep editing with Margie too. 

Six writers. Digging deep. Making their writing NYT strong!

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 160 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 full days or four half-days of deep editing. You, your manuscript, a small group of committed authors, and Margie!

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

    I have never spent a better four days on craft. Margie explained while I identified the visuals and emotions needed to make my work come alive. Her explanations, secrets, tips, and examples make it easy to understand. If you are looking for a way to add Body Language, Visceral Responses, Dialogue Tags and more that make your story sing, then you must take Margie's Immersion Class. I have been waiting a long time to say, I am an Immersion Grad!

    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.
