  1. […] my novel draft – one scene at a time. I’m currently on week 3 of a 6-week course REVISE FOR PUBLICATION, taught by Jordan Rosenfeld. So far – I’ve learned tons on the process of breaking down […]

  2. Hi Jordan, (hope you don’t mind me using your first name…)

    I’m really interested in these classes, but I live in Ontario. Not close to you, by any means… So, I’m wondering: do you offer these classes ‘online’ or through a study form like CD platform, or video of your classes where a person can follow along with the teaching, then proceed independantly?

    I’m very good at doing independent studies. Did a Asscosiate Bachelor Degree that way.

    Let me know.


  3. Hmmmm. Just realized. Maybe you have a book published that does this????

    Looking forward to your reply.
