Who I work with
I love working with folks new to writing and helping them find their way into their stories, as well as working with veterans of the craft helping them work through blockages or keeping them motivated and on task. I am happy working with anyone over 10 on an individual or group basis, and any age in a group, so long as they can put words on the page. I am best working with folks in the planning stage or content editing phase of their writing, though I don’t enjoy the copy-editing step or hunting down small errors in the manuscript.
