Drawing on both my in-house editorial experience at Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, and my own experience as a writer, I partner with authors to help them realize the full potential of their in-progress or completed manuscripts + offer insight and encouragement as they navigate the tricky world of publishing.
I work primarily with aspiring fiction writers to help them hone and finesse everything from the overall structure of their story to clarity of prose. We partner together to get your manuscript unputdownable. I have worked with debut authors, on Pulitzer Prize winning teams, and with New York Times Bestsellers. My interests include literary fiction, historical fiction, and upmarket women’s fiction, as well as select memoir.
I am especially keen to work with writers seeking publication who identify as members of communities that are underrepresented in the industry at-large. I offer ‘sliding-scale’ and/or waived consultation fees for such individuals who are also in exceptional financial circumstances. Please get in touch if this may apply.
