If you've taken your manuscript as far as you can, or if you're feeling stuck along the way, it may be time to hire an editor and/or writing coach.
I provide substantive feedback on fiction (flash, short stories, novels) and creative nonfiction (memoir, personal essays). I work with completed manuscripts and individual stories/essays. I can also help with query letters, book proposals, residency applications, and submission strategies.
I've worked with clients on stories and essays that have been published in Booth, SmokeLong Quarterly, River Teeth, Third Point Press, Janus Literary, New Ohio Review, and many other literary journals, as well as pieces that have won prizes, grants, and nominations such as Best Microfiction and Best of the Net. I've also worked with clients on residency applications that resulted in acceptances from Tin House and Bread Loaf.
