I provide feedback for creative writing at any stage of the process, from early ideas, to revision, to line editing, to publication opportunities and coaching on the process itself. Simply put, I’m here to offer solutions.
My emphasis is on story in all its wide variety. That can be flash fiction, short stories, novellas, novels as well as screenplays for TV and movies. My feedback is honest and clear, with an emphasis on reading through to where a story needs to go—what it wants to be.
I also have extensive experience working with poetry, creative nonfiction, academic essays, undergrad and graduate application essays, website copy, and more. I’ve taught at UCLA Extension for over five years and worked with writing students at four different universities.
Above all, my goals are 1) to make your writing stronger 2) to help you become the kind of writer you want to be.
I charge $50-$75 an hour, depending on the project. I can usually read and comment on a single short story in the space of about two hours, but it depends on your needs. Initial consultations are free.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can go over your goals and options.
