Work With Me

I would love to work with you as a developmental editor, a.k.a. your tutor, sounding board, and collaborator for anything story or writing related.

The single greatest benefit of working with me is that I will not be talking in generalities, but working to improve your specific story with fresh and experienced eyes. If you want to feel encouraged as you improve as a writer, produce work you are proud of and achieve your writing goals, then I hope you will consider collaborating with me.

Consider working with me if:

You have an idea, now what? Perhaps friends have told you that you MUST write your memoir. Or maybe a character that has popped into your head and hasn’t left you alone. Or you are an expert looking for a way to organize their thoughts on the page.

I can help develop your grain of an idea into an outline and draft.

You have written part of a story, but have gotten stuck. You don’t know what should happen next, or if you should start over, or give up the project completely.

I can help you re-focus, stay motivated, and develop systems to unstick yourself in the future.

You have a draft, but it doesn’t quite work. Perhaps you are coming off a successful NaNoWriMo with 50,000 words that now seem less magical when you read them back. If you are wondering how to apply the wisdom of generic writing advice to your specific trouble spots. If you don’t know exactly what is missing or how to move forward from this point, I can help!

I can help you identify specific areas of improvement in the work and provide actionable steps for you to create a draft ready to query.

If you are interested in working with me, the first step is to arrange a free hour-long consultation. I can learn about your specific project, where you need help and together we can problem solve, set goals, and determine how best to move forward.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
