300 for a class.

Z, that's per month. If I could afford that, I would already be a successful writer. :)

I'd like to think I would, too.

No, that's just one month's instruction- she takes it month by month- you don't have to continue on past that, though.

 

But personally, I think you would do just as well, Z, to take her course titled The 4 Foundational Pillars of Novel Structure for $49.  Just my 2 cents.

I've been a subscriber to CS Lakin's email list for several months, and I've got almost every craft book she's written. Plus, I've also bought her self-editing course and the new one coming out next month on emotional mastery. (She had a 50% off discount). In short, I'm a huge fan. She's a great teacher, and I'm learning so much from her. For myself and many others, as @suspensewritersaid, she has made her expertise available at much cheaper price points, first through her books, then her courses.

 

However, I realise that some people are just wired to benefit more from one-on-one coaching rather than learning from books. Not everyone is able to apply what they read in craft books to their own writing, and if that's the case, although $300 is expensive, it could be a good investment in a person's growth.

@Shamrock Yes, it's called 5 Editors Tackle the 12 Fatal Flaws of Fiction Writing. But that's the one I don't have. I have her self-editing course, called 10 Easy but Essential Self-Editing Tips. I think the book goes a lot more in-depth.

 

That course is very short and is meant more for the polishing stage of editing, when the story is more or less sound.
