I have been in Heather's workshop a little over a year now and this is what I know. If you have an idea, Heather will help you turn it into a fully developed story, article or essay beyond what you ever thought possible! She is extraordinarily creative, supportive, encouraging and hugely knowledgeable about the craft of writing. If you have ever dreamed of being a writer and are willing to put the hard work in, this is the class for you.
PERSONALIZED WORKSHOPS & EDITORIAL GUIDANCE
Heather helps writers find and coax their ideas into outlines and story shapes, create treatments and proposals, and begin to get words on the page. She tailors her feedback to the individual writer's goals, helping them see the opening choices they can make when considering voice, setting, POV's, characterization, plot, theme, structure, and tone. The cost is $200 for 3 sessions, or $75 per individual session.
Book Incubation and Development:
For those seeking weekly motivation, guidance, and editorial feedback for their works-in-progress, Heather offers personalized remote workshops. Writers submit up to 15 pages weekly, and have a scheduled call with Heather during which she provides editorial feedback, helping writers develop their chapters, and maintain narrative drive and tension, as well as consider voice, point of view, theme, characterization, dialogue, description, reflection, tone, pacing, setting, scene, language, and the all-important emotion of the work. Personalized workshops are priced at $350 for 6 sessions.
For completed manuscripts, Heather offers developmental editing to help writers shape their works into page-turning, driven, emotionally-compelling narratives. Drawing out the intentions of the writer, and keeping an eye on story structure and shape, she helps the writer close the gap between vision and execution.
She provides a detailed written report and notes within the manuscript. Additionally, she provides an agreed upon number of conference calls to discuss the report and help the writer consider a plan of action for making changes. Developmental editing is priced at .02-.04 cents a word, depending on the project.
Pre-publication planning: In addition to editorial help, Heather offers assistance with book proposals, querying, securing an agent, building a platform, marketing and publicity ideas, and everything else it takes to bring your work to market. Priced per scope of the work.
All the above, only Heather will write your project for you. Email to query for a project.
