Mary DeSantis, fiction editor. Unpacking and Detoxing Stories


Welcome to Kit ‘N Kabookle!

Hurry! Class Registration is Almost Closed

I’m teaching my first class through Savvy Authors in a couple of weeks, and registration closes soon.

Self-Editing from Page 0 is all about writing cleaner, tighter rough drafts.

We’ll cover…
  • techniques for prewriting
  • creating your writing atmosphere
  • ways to edit without losing the first-draft momentum

And more.
~Sign up before registration closes!


Unpacking: Great fiction should be like a present, pretty on the outside with a big reveal inside.

Detoxing: Great fiction should be like a healthy diet: balanced and filling.
