If you want to keep going with your stories

if you’ve been letting a bunch of first drafts sit for far too long

if you want to get some fresh ideas and revise in community

then the Revision Blitz is the offering for you!

Why a revision blitz?


So we can keep the momentum of the previous week’s writing challenge going.

So we can really embed these writing habits inside ourselves.


So we can practice writing alchemy.

The ongoing process of turning raw materials (our body sensations, memories, desire to tell stories)  into something else entirely, something valuable (a story we can share with others, a story that moves people).


So you can practice revising and rewriting in community, learning from and sharing your insights with others, as you all work towards the same goals of polishing your stories.


For the next steps of your writing journey, which might be submitting them to journals, lieterary magazines, or self-publishing some kind of chapbook.

Because you want people want to read your stories.

Right!? 😅

“This is the best, most brilliantly facilitated writing workshop I’ve experienced.

I’ve been on a long healing journey and have only recently begun learning the connection to listening to my body in the process.

I spent hours delving into this work and absolutely loved it.

I feel like you and your training combine everything that resonates with my soul – the healing work, the grounding and body awareness, the creative process and my heart’s calling to write my story.”

Hi! I’m your co-teacher, Janelle Hardy.

I’m a transformational memoir-writing teacher and somatic (body) healing practitioner.

I know a thing or two about how writing and the body go together.

I also know a few things about revision and teaching revision. In my 20s and 30s I got very good at writing short articles and essays, especially 500-word articles for some coming events magazines.

I was only paid $50 an article, so I strategized researching, interviewing, writing and revising into a 2-hour timeframe. These almost never required substantial changes from the editor.

I worked at Yukon College as a Writing Tutor, helping students improve their writing assignments, in a wide variety of writing styles.

I taught an English Literature course at Yukon College.

I was a teaching assistant for a 1st year university course at York University called Arts and Ideas.

I’ve developed and taught my own online writing and revision course called Fine Toothed Comb.

And so much more.

Join us!

Hi! I’m your co-teacher, E. Ce Miller.

I’m a writer from the American Midwest living in South Korea, where I’m working on a collection of short fiction and a memoir.

My words have appeared in Bustle, Hollywood Weekly, The Sun Magazine: Readers Write, Midwestern Gothic, and elsewhere.

As a ghostwriter, I’ve written or co-written twelve books published by independent, micro, and hybrid presses, including an award-winning memoir.

I currently work as a copyeditor for the micro-press Alpha Sisters Publishing.

In 2024, I was awarded StoryStudio Chicago’s Doro Boehme grant for my in-progress fiction collection.

“Janelle is a gifted teacher

with genius instincts on juxtaposing sources and materials to spark genuine creativity. Her body focus set light to what is now an essential part of my own creative life.”

Have a question?

How do I know whether this process is right for me?

If you want to get the stories you just wrote (or will write) in the writing challenge polished up, this is right for you!

No experience editing, revising or rewriting necessary. All you have to do is show up with curiosity, ready to go back through your writing and get it more and more marvelous.


When is this revision offering happening?

The revision blitz runs from Monday July 15th to Friday July 19th.

From 4-5pm Pacific Time. If you can’t come live, you’ll always be able to participate via the replays.

You’ll also be able to join our pop-up facebook community on the 13th, and that will be open for 10 days.

What if I’m not able to attend the sessions live?

While I recommend that you join live to make progress alongside others and have the chance to ask questions, the replays will be posted right after the sessions, and you’ll have access to replays until the end of 2024, so you can catch up, take action, and keep revising your stories.

How much time will I need to dedicate each day?

An hour for the daily session. And as much time as you want outside of that for revising your stories.

Do I need to be a good writer to do this?

No, you don’t need any experience revising, rewriting or  to sign up for the revision blitz. 

The cure for anything you think you’re ‘bad’ at is practice. So sign up!

And, if you do have experience, you’ll find this revision blitz will be a refreshing approach polishing your writing.


Are the sessions captioned or transcribed?

Yes. All sessions will have live closed captioning enabled and replays will also be captioned.

Please reach out if there’s anything we can do to ensure you’re able to enjoy this event.

Is there a community component to this challenge?

Yes, and it’s optional.

You’ll be invited to join the pop-up community from July 13th, and it will be open for 10 days.

I still have questions!

If you still have questions, I encourage you to go ahead and sign up.

Your questions will likely be answered during the event or in the facebook group.

However, if you need to ask us a question before registering, feel free to send me an email at

“Janelle’s writing process, with focus on embodiment, has been important healing work for me.

Her leadership is quiet and compassionate. Her writing process is gentle and healing.

She offers an abundant banquet and lets me choose what to try. She encourages me to go at my own pace, including information about resistance so that I don’t get stuck.”
