Your clients demand a comprehensive and objective edit of their manuscript.


But how does a writer know they’re going to get the edit they need and deserve? They hire a Fictionary Certified StoryCoach. 

Fictionary StoryCoaches have been trained to edit in a comprehensive and objective way using StoryCoach software.


Student Terry Groves Says...


"I invested in this course. I thought it was well done and complete, accomplishing its purpose.

I got a lot out of it, helping me to define story edit, copyedit and proofread.

Like most, I tend to cross those lines when I am working with others. I feel that I am now better prepared to get my own manuscripts to the stage where they need to be looked at by a story editor. This will save me money in the long run.

As well, I will now be able to assist other writers with more focused editing and coaching advice. The pace of the course was gentle, offering me a variety of ways, oral and written, to absorb the information it presents.

I recommend all authors and would-be editors take it."
