Critiques & ConsultationsCritiques and consults for writers of all levels.
“Writing for children is like writing “War and Peace,” in haiku.” ~ Mem Fox
I’m thrilled that you’re interested in working together on a specific project or perhaps just to explore where you want to take your writing career. This is where you can get some one-on-one love for your manuscript and/or you as a writer.
PICTURE BOOK WRITERS: If you are new to writing picture books, I do require that you either provide background you have in learning about them and how to write them and will ask about your experience. Another option is to get that experience through my live foundation sessions or combine it with a “I’m New to Picture Books!” program. See the Consultation and Coaching page for more information.
UPDATE: Due to personal circumstances, I will not be accepting manuscripts or doing consults at this time. I hope to reopen sometime in the early part of 2021. Thank you for wanting to connect and for your understanding and keep up your creativity!
CRITIQUE vs CONSULTATION
✓ Interested in detailed comments and questions
✓ Micro level feedback on plot, character, theme and more
✓ Interested in first impressions
✓ Feedback on high level concepts (plot, character…)
You’ve worked on it intensely, feel it’s close, but would like another viewpoint
