Self-paced classes can be accessed for eighteen months after purchase and allow you to go at your own pace. Read the materials and do the lessons when you have time. There is no instructor feedback, but exercises and answer keys help you understand how to put the principles into practice. See the Self-Paced Curriculum Plan below.
Self-Paced Curriculum Plan
- Begin with the Essentials of Developmental Editing series of classes, which starts with Foundations of Storytelling for Developmental Editors.
- Then, focus on specific aspects of editing with other self-paced options in areas of interest such as Editing the Romance and Editing for Point-of-View and Perspective.
- Finish with Developmental Editing Practicum, in which you do a complete developmental editing on a novel manuscript and receive personal feedback on your work.
All self-paced clases can be applied toward your Certificate in the Developmental Editing of Fiction, but you will need to take some additional instructor-led classes to fulfill all of the requirements. Click here for more information about the program and click here to apply.
