Editor / Writing Coach

writer at deskIf you’re working to lift the quality of your writing, I may be able to help. I’ve edited the work of award-winning writers, and I’ve coached other writers in workshops and on a one-to-one basis.

Empathy, I believe, is the key to successful editing and coaching. Sometimes it means channeling the writer’s inner voice – the one that he or she may have trouble sustaining.

I won’t promise to work with everyone – we’ll need to establish common ground about goals and practices – but I’ll gladly read and respond to an up-to-1,000-word sample of your work as an opening step.

Samples of my novels, short stories, and memoir are posted here on my website, along with my CV, publication history, and references. Please contact me by e-mail if you have questions.
