I provide services that can assist in a writer's creative writing endeavors.  I work primarily with poetry and the creative nonfiction essay, tailoring feedback to the needs and goals of each participant.  I'll provide editorial and critical feedback that facilitates the writer's specific level of  experience--from the beginning to more advanced writer, from individual pieces to full-length manuscripts. Combining careful and close feedback with in-depth conversations about each work, our sessions will include recommendations of model readings (both creative and genre-based essays).  Our sessions can take place in-person or on Zoom.     

We'll begin with a 'get acquainted' initial session and have a conversation about a writing sample of work for each of us to determine if we wish to work together further.  If so, we can meet as often as the participant writer wishes, from one session to a semester's worth (or more). My goal is to connect with writers to help develop their strength at all levels of the writing experience.
