We consider finite deformations of the Hull-Strominger system. Starting from the heterotic superpotential, we identify complex coordinates on the off-shell parameter space. Expanding the superpotential around a supersymmetric vacuum leads to a thirdorder Maurer-Cartan equation that controls the moduli. The resulting complex effective action generalises that of both Kodaira-Spencer and holomorphic Chern-Simons theory. The supersymmetric locus of this action is described by an L3 algebra.
