Writing Coach/Manuscript Consultant

Let me help you with your writing! While my specialty is poetry, I also work with prose writers, including students writing papers and applications to colleges and graduate programs. I will work with you on a project of any size, and over any time duration.

I offer a safe environment, nurturing each writer's individual voice through risk-taking and greater elasticity with language. My goal in guiding other writers is to nurture their authenticity. I will gently invite you out of your own way. My critique of your work will be objective and thorough, but sensitive. You will receive detailed comments from me, whether we meet in person or by e-mail, about each piece I evaluate.

I believe that writer-to-writer guidance is best provided by deep and respectful listening, and by identifying and applauding the author's best tendencies.
