Writing Coaching and Editorial Services

Writing is hard. But you don't have to do it alone. I offer coaching and editorial services to individual clients or workshop groups. I work with academic writers, memoirists, poets, kidlit and fiction writers to help them experience joy and solidarity in their writing process.

As your writing coach, I help you set and reach your writing goals, whether this means developing a regular writing practice, completing a manuscript, or finding creative freedom when you feel stuck.

Are you finished with a draft? Have you been staring at something for so long you can't see it anymore? Do you want to take the next step with your writing project?

I offer manuscript evaluation and critique services to give you a big-picture perspective and identify strategies for revision.

After a manuscript evaluation, I can to work with you to do a developmental (big picture) edit and/or a line edit that looks at sentence-level revision.

I bring over eight years of college writing teaching experience to my work as a coach and editor. In addition, I have worked as a freelance writer for fifteen years, publishing three books as well as fiction, essays and poems in publications like Harper's, The Atlantic, and the Kenyon Review. I still find writing hard, and I value company on the journey.
