Do you have something to say, and you’re not afraid of saying it in writing? If your love of writing drives you to develop your skills, and if your story insists on being told, perhaps it is time for you to make writing more than a hobby.

As a published memoirist with a master’s degree in nonfiction, I work with students one-on-one so they can get the supervision and attention they need. Many two and four-year colleges teach fiction and poetry courses, but there is a serious lack of nonfiction. Often the teacher specializes in either poetry or fiction.

Because of this, many nonfiction students end up disguising their work as fiction in a fiction or mixed fiction and poetry class. On top of that, even undergraduate nonfiction courses leave you and your work in a sea of other students vying for the personal attention you need to develop your work.

Meeting weekly or biweekly over Zoom, I will go over your manuscript and work with you on your level. Between classes, I will read some of your work in progress and be ready to move you and your drafts forward at the next meeting.

The meetings run $50 an hour with manuscript reading between meetings at no cost. Please contact me for more information.
