You are a writer.

A writer writes—this is true. But a writer also reads. A writer learns. She is eager to experiment and grow. She may write epic best-sellers or bits of poetry in the sand. She may write nothing she’d ever share. She writes to-do lists, love letters, and scathing emails. She publishes ground-breaking research, bodice-rippers, and blogs about baking. She traces the alphabet on a baby’s pudgy hand. She makes plans, keeps calendars, signs condolence cards, and captures rainbows in her mind. 

The most important thing to know about writers is that you are one.

How or whether or not you put your words into the world doesn’t matter—you are writing your story. What will your next chapter be?

Mentoring Services

Generative Writing Groups

The goal is for you to feel supported and inspired in your writing practice. We will focus on generating new creative work—writing and sharing in real-time together. Each workshop will include at least two prompts with time for writing, reading your work, and offering encouraging feedback to others.

Online writing groups are for writers in any genre at any level of experience.

  • Sow Your Writing Sessions | 3 hours ($45)

  • Grow your Writing Series | 2 hours x 4 weeks ($120)

Sessions will be conducted via Zoom (cameras are always optional).

Optimal group size: 6-8

Developmental Editing

You’ve found your voice, now let’s hone it. I focus on the big picture of your story. What do you want to say and how can you say it with maximum effect? I will guide you toward achieving your project goal with thoughtful responses, actionable critiques, and examples of how to apply strong writing craft to your story.

Here’s what we could work on together:

  • Defining project goals and developing a plan to get to “the end.”

  • Page critiques include an overview of strengths and areas for improvement, line editing (not copy editing or proofreading), and margin comments.

  • Manuscript coaching and evaluation

Pricing, scheduling, and more details coming soon!
