Thick-Skinned Manuscript Critique

Learn How to Become a Ferocious Self-Editor.

It’s Time You Discovered What Publishers are Really Looking For in a Novel.

This course is for you if you're looking to publish a novel, but you worry the quality of your writing is holding you back.

In this elite workshop, 21-time New York Times bestselling author Jerry Jenkins will completely edit and rewrite the first pages of ten novel manuscripts submitted by writers just like you—and show you what works, what doesn’t, and why.

By the end, you’ll know the exact fixes to apply to your own novel to give it the best chance of captivating readers and succeeding with a publisher.

Do you sometimes get that sinking feeling your writing isn’t where it needs to be to land a publishing contract?

You have a story that deserves to be shared and a deep passion to tell it. But without extraordinarily powerful writing, it’s almost impossible to score.

All you’ll get from publishers are those frustrating rejection letters, kindly telling you it doesn't meet a current need but offering nothing that helps you improve.

If you resort to e-publishing or self-publishing without learning to make your prose as tight and clear as possible, readers will will quickly lose interest in your novel—and your career.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

With just the right edits—which Jerry can teach YOU to do yourself—you can finally produce a manuscript to be proud of....one that can compete in the highly competitive fiction publishing marketplace.

An editor can tell within the first two pages whether your novel is worth reading further.

How do they know? By the quality and clarity of your writing. Unless your manuscript grabs them by the throat immediately and hangs on, it’s going straight into the reject pile.

It’s time to become a ferocious self-editor and transform your writing forever.

In this intensive three-hour workshop, Jerry Jenkins reveals his proven process for editing your novel so you can get an editor hooked from the first page.

Jerry dissects and overhaul the opening pages of ten manuscripts, showing you exactly what he would change before submitting them to a publisher.

After each manuscript, you’ll get the chance to hear a revealing Q&A session, where the live attendees asked Jerry why he did what he did.

You’ll also have lifetime access to the recording, so you can keep Jerry’s bestselling knowledge in your back pocket for every novel you write!
