I work with writers of all stripes—amateur and professional, forward-moving and flailing, native-speaking and multilingual, creative and technical, fiction and non-.
Whether one-to-one, in small groups, or in workshops, whether once a week, once a month, or once a year, I have over 25 years’ experience coaching, coaxing, championing, cajoling, commiserating, critiquing, and copyediting.
I help writers:
- Shape memories into memoirs
- Stretch short stories into collections
- Wrangle novels
- Tighten essays
- Enliven websites
- Structure articles
- Streamline academic prose
Got words? I’ve got ideas!
