Coaching, Consulting, Editing and Private Study

I work with a select clientele of committed writers, both new and accomplished, in both fiction and nonfiction (across the genres). My goal is not only a better project but a better writer. I can help develop a new project, bring an ongoing project to completion, cut an overlong manuscript, troubleshoot advanced drafts after rejection, evaluate the editorial advice of others, anticipate future projects and career, and more. Every reading includes a detailed letter of evaluation with complete advice on revision, and a one-hour phone consult. If warranted, I offer advice on publication, agents, etc.

For an additional fee, I also offer line-editing, which is detailed attention at the word, phrase, sentence, and paragraph levels, including spelling, grammar, sense, clarity, mechanics, and presentation.

Finally, I offer private study for those writers who want to develop and hone their craft in a customized, one-on-one program.

If you are interested in pursuing any of the options, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page:
