Supporting Writers

Teaching and Coaching

In small groups and workshops I create a safe space for us to share our insights. As we write together, create drafts, and discuss revision, we come to trust ourselves as writers. We have fun discovering our material and making it shine.

As a writing coach, I work with you to co-create a plan that meets your needs. I can help you

  • identify and build on your writing strengths
  • develop confidence as a writer
  • break through writing blocks
  • tap into your passion and creativity
  • make anxiety work for you as you write
  • embrace the writing process
  • stay on track with your projects
  • hone your message
  • connect with your audience
  • find joy in writing

Coaching is often a short-term arrangement. I work with only a few coaching clients at a time. If you think you might want to work with me, please contact me to see if I have any current openings.

Details on workshops, groups, and coaching options will be posted soon.

Manuscript Review and Editing

I am a careful, insightful reader of fiction and nonfiction manuscripts. My compassionate, targeted feedback can help you revise your stories, refine your messages, and write with authenticity and power. In manuscript review, I provide detailed feedback to guide you in revising your work.

After you’ve done as much revising as you can on your own, you may want additional help. In developmental editing, I do hands-on work to develop and refine your manuscript.

Details on manuscript review and editing options will be posted soon.
