Working Style

For manuscripts and samples, I provide a 1-2 page typed editorial letter with a first read, in addition to in-person meeting. For a second read, I provide margin comments (in a word doc) addressing more specific elements.
For all services, a 1-page statement from the writer pitching the project and outlining goals for the work and for the consultation sessions is required (not a formal thing: just so I can get a clear sense of where you’re at and where you’re hoping to get to).


Monthy to weekly: school calendar only.


Young Adult (all genres), Children’s/Middle Grade (all genres), Science Fiction, Literary Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Screenwriting, Short Fiction.
