Writing Consultations

Fiction Workshop


Let me suss out the strengths and potential of your story-in-progress!  I offer a comprehensive letter and manuscript notes discussing a work of fiction (up to 25 pages double-spaced).  Manuscript notes will identify immediate reactions and responses to the text, while the letter will carefully identify craft at work as well as offering questions and suggestions to move the story forward, sharpen its focus, or where to submit for publication.  Follow-up revision workshops are $30.

I am happy to workshop your poetry too!  I offer the same workshop and marginalia for up to 6 poems (up to 15 pages in length).


Short Story Collection Consultation


I absolutely adore fiction collections and offer comprehensive consultations to your collections.  This package includes narrowing down stories for inclusion, collection ordering, in-depth workshops of 3 stories of the author's choosing, and support finding a press for publication.  To support you throughout this process, I will be available for email correspondence as well as an hour-long phone or in-person conversation.
