Editing Devotionals 101 Group Course


God calls us to excellence. He doesn’t take a slapdash approach to any endeavor he undertakes as illustrated in the detailed plans for the tabernacle (Exodus 25-28) and the temple (1 Kings 6). In this course, we’ll build a strong foundation for editing devotionals, construct a solid content framework, and then work on the details that add finesse to a manuscript.

This course has been crafted for those who desire to offer content (substantive) and line-by-line editing services to authors who write devotionals. It focuses on editing the content of a manuscript. (If you need to learn the basics of formatting a nonfiction manuscript for publication—along with a lot of other valuable information on documentation, graphics, and copyright laws—you’ll want to take Nonfiction Editing 101.)

  1. This course was everything I expected and much more. We had really great discussions on the forum. I felt like I learned a lot from my classmates. Also, I liked reading different devotions to get a picture of what works and what doesn’t. Denise was gracious and encouraging as she made me think about things I hadn’t considered. I learned so much more than I expected. –Carrie D.

  2. I really enjoyed using the discussion board to ask questions and have them answered. I also enjoyed seeing other’s assignments. I like that I could take this course at my own pace. Everything was explained clearly.
