Services for Writers

As an instructor and an accomplished writer, I would love to work with you in reaching your writing goals. Whether you have a specific project or want general career coaching, please reach out to me using the CONTACT FORM.

Manuscript Critique Services

If you have an individual, finished manuscript, I will work with you providing detailed feedback regarding theme, pacing, rhyme, plot, character & more on the way to making your story submission-ready.

Mentorship Services

If you are in the "idea" stage but need help through the entire writing process from idea to drafting, revising, editing, market analysis and submission, I offer 3-month and 6-month mentorship opportunities.

Career Coaching

Here I help you with the practice of becoming a professional author. I provide guidance toward establishing your career goals, developing habits and behaviors to support your goals, identifying obstacles and strategies to overcome them, and counseling through both the good and rough patches that are sure to come.
