I signed up for Jodi's workshop on transformational arcs because of specific comments from two acquiring editors. Jodi took the time to understand my situation, the editorial feedback, and my novella, including what I could (and should) realistically accomplish in that length piece. I didn't expect to receive such detailed one-on-one feedback.

Jodi Henley is a developmental editor based in the Seattle area, Jodi specializes in character-driven fiction, and is well-known for her ability to turn theory into practical, usable bites. A big fan of the transformational character arc, emotional structure and backstory, Jodi spends her days utilizing the information in her workshops.
Jodi believes that there is no one size fits all approach to learning, and has dedicated her workshops to helping people learn in a way that works for them.
Description of Workshop:
If you love cliff-hangers, over the top situations, short stories, lack time, and enjoy an ever-evolving cast of characters, try your hand at serials, because Great Serials Sell! Plus it's a TWO DAY workshop, so you're back to writing quickly
Shifters, vampires, damsels-in-peril of their lives (as many times as possible), or cutthroat dynasties that make the gang from Game of Thrones look like wimps. Do you like the CW? Do you have a secret fascination with were-otters, or think the heroine of your stories can move her entire high school into the next dimension if everyone cries on the same day at the same time? Installments are fun and easy to write, and make it more likely your backlist will sell.
