Creative Coaching and Editing Services

My practice is rooted in writing center work and the low-residency MFA model, and I've experienced firsthand the magic sparked by working with an experienced peer or mentor. I believe in the generative and clarifying power of asking questions, working in dialogue, stimulating craft through the rubbing together of two minds. Wherever you are in the writing process, I’d love to work with you on your creative project. Consider me an experienced friend who is committed to helping you develop, sharpen, and materialize your vision, all while maintaining the integrity of your unique voice.
