Writing and publishing are not based solely on craft or talent, there's a privilege involved.. And not one that I take lightly. It’s my goal to reach and support underrepresented writers and to give space to those voices that are often muted or silenced. Inclusivity & open-mindedness, creativity, and freedom to share stories are all values at the forefront of everything I do. Words can changes lives, and I am all about that!
Evaluations on your poetry, creative non-fiction, or short story manuscripts.
Comprehensive Consulting - First to Final Draft!
I can work with you in phases from first draft to a polished final draft. This would include one on one meetings to go over suggestions for change, answer questions and to go over techniques for editing your own work, and integral steps to take when redrafting. Publishing advice included.
Simple Manuscript Evaluation
I would read your current draft of your manuscript and point out strengths and weaknesses, give suggestions for improvements, and tips for publishing when ready. Get in touch for a quote.
