Editor and Creative Writing Coach

Summary:

Over the past decade, I've gained a wide arc of experience working with a few dozen writers to offer in-depth critique (editing and coaching) for a variety of works (of many differing genres) ranging from novels, short stories and poetry to creative memoirs and vignettes. I have some experience with non-fiction works as well, including articles, an engineering book, resumes, web-content and blogs.

Details of Coaching and Editing Options:

1) In-depth critique of fiction with suggestions relating to:

*Fine tuning rough spots with feedback relating to sentence structure, grammatical errors, wordiness, redundancies, poor writing habits, mistakes, etc.

*Evaluation of structural and developmental issues with feedback on style, flow, POV, dialog, descriptive narrative, delivery and composition, etc.

*Overall evaluation of theme, plot and character development.

*Polishing with final proofreading to note typos or formatting issues.

*All or any of the above.

2) For both poetry and fiction writers: Mentoring - working with a developing writer, on an on-going basis, to facilitate personal development for each one's unique voice and style, and to hone skills in the writing craft.

3) Consultation, proofreading and feedback for compiling a book of poems or short stories with a cohesive theme-thread.

4) Proofreading with basic feedback for any writing, fiction, non-fiction, articles, poems, speeches, etc.

5) Ghostwriting

Editing

Currently editing three novels, one script and one book of poetry, as well as coaching a handful of poets and writers on an on-going basis. While my plate is almost full, there is room for one or two more clients for editing jobs that are intermittent (for example, sending a chapter at a time as opposed to the entire manuscript at once).
