Work with me
From one-on-one manuscript consulting to leading workshops and classes, my work is all about encouraging and strengthening writers in their work.
All the ways we can meet on the page
I work with both established and emerging writers. In conversation with each writer, we custom-tailor how we work together. After an initial conversation or email exchange with a writer in which we clarify exactly what they are seeking, I suggest an approach to the initial consult. Usually this first consult, particularly with writers who are new to me, is a “testing the waters” one. I focus on a sample from their writing so that I can give them the editorial feedback and we can see if we are a good fit.
I offer a variety of consults. Which type would work best for you? It depends on your goals, what pace you want to work at and what cost you can afford.
You can work one-on-one with me or another mentor. This solo plan allows you to write and edit at your own pace and with as much editing input as you wish to receive.
If you are further along with your manuscript and need more steady contact with a mentor, consider enrolling in the Vancouver Manuscript Intensive program, which runs every year from January to June. VMI’s six-month container period means you’ll have deadlines which will sharpen your focus and help you reach the next—perhaps final—phase of writing your manuscript.
