EXCELLENT TEACHING!

“I learned more in the five lessons than I think I learned in four years at school! With this no-nonsense approach, I was able to see where my manuscript could be improved without spending hours not knowing what to look for.” Deryn van der Tang

{

Broken down Nicely

I’m currently revising a second-draft manuscript, so having a clear list of things to target prevents me from getting overwhelmed! It was broken down nicely into mini-tasks. Breakthrough: there’s a reason why my writing has always felt too wordy! That’s because it is! Ella

IT MAKES EVERYTHING I WRITE BETTER

Though I submitted my essay ‘A Blur in the Field’ to a few literary journals without publication, I tried again with Cutleaf, but only AFTER I ran it through Stacy Juba’s Line Editing Cheat Sheet. The essay was immediately accepted for publication and I was paid more for it than for any other piece I’ve published! I recommend Stacy’s smart and helpful list. It makes everything I write better. (Of course I’m still using it!)” Lori Brack

In case we haven’t met . . . Hey, I’m Stacy.

I help fiction and creative nonfiction writers of all levels who want to simplify the writing and editing process so they can save time and money. I’m also a mom of two teens and have more than 700 books on my Kindle, an obsession with the TV show Supernatural, an addiction to doing the daily Wordle, and a bizarre fascination with office supplies and planners.

Growing up, I was quite the introvert but found my voice through writing. Since I wasn’t gutsy enough to go out and solve mysteries like Nancy Drew, (that girl got herself into a lot of danger!) I made up my own and then branched out into other genres.

Fast forward to today. I’m the author of 10 published books, a freelance developmental editor and creator of online courses for writers, and an award-winning journalist who has published more than 3,000 articles. I’ve also taught workshops for organizations including Savvy Authors, Sisters in Crime, and Romance Writer of America, have been a panelist at many in-person and online conferences, and have been interviewed on dozens of podcasts.

SUPER HELPFUL

“Love how easy and on point your tips are for self editing. Super helpful resource.” Jenny Leigh Hodgins 

{

EASED MY OVERWHELM

“The simplicity of working on one aspect at a time eased my overwhelm at the thought of editing. Each lesson directed me to accomplish a direct task, preventing fear from hindering. I will use the ‘one thing at a time’ approach when dealing with larger developmental problems also. Examine dialogue, check for continuity of descriptions, etc.

Great introduction for beginners and helpful reminders for those of us who should know better than to let redundancies or overused cliches sneak in, but sneak in they will.” Hazel

LOTS OF DIFFERENT MISTAKES

“I learned that there are lots of different kinds of mistakes I’ve been making. And to break it into manageable pieces is helpful to me.” Audrey Gran Weinberg

{

BREAKS IT INTO MANAGEABLE STEPS

““This class not only taught me how to break down editing into manageable steps, but also how to think differently about my work during the process. The latter is the hardest part.” Fox Haddock

ENJOY INSTEAD OF DREADING IT

I am working one step at a time through each chapter of my first draft using your lessons and enjoy the work instead of dreading it. I can see the benefits in my revised work.  You unveiled some of the mystery that surrounds ‘editing’ and replaced it with confidence that I can improve my writing. Biggest surprise is the joy this brings, and the laughter when I find an illogical sentence!” Ann Rapp

EASY TO FOLLOW

“This is a quick course that gives you several ways to improve your story. Easy to follow and love the Cheat Sheet.” Valerie Miller

LESS CAN BE MORE

It is a great reminder that less can be more. I was reminded why everyone needs an editor. Editors are unsung heroes in the publishing business.” Nancy Jo Perdue

The manuscript really did Improve

This course helped me see problems that I didn’t realize were problems. When I applied the editing suggestions, the manuscript really did improve. The content is broken into bite-sized chunks, making it doable.”
