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:
Are you plodding through your novel when it should feel like a page-turner at breakneck speed? Have you caught your beta readers yawning?
If your story isn't moving fast enough or you're getting lost in the words, join us for six easy ways to kick down the stop sign and get into gear in ONE DAY. This is not a personal motivation workshop. Spend one day to kick your story into high gear. You will be provided with six simple, fill-in-the-blank worksheets (with diagrams!) designed to strip your story down to exactly what it needs, look for stop signs in your work, and put the pedal to the metal.
Stop here for a day, grab your handouts, ask questions about the parts you can't easily answer and be on your way with the ability to use these new skills over and over again!
What is required to be prepared for this class?
Whether you are writing or editing, this workshop will work for you.
Will there be homework and feedback?
There is no homework, but if you want to spend the day working on your sheets, there will be lots of feedback and support.
