“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.

Here's my scoop for 2019:
NOVELISTS: Due to my own novel projects and teaching commitments, I need to push any novels to late fall 2019 unless we've already begun work together. I'm happy to provide referrals - just indicate that on the form.
PICTURE BOOK WRITERS: I am not scheduling any full manuscript critiques until Fall 2019. I am scheduling just a few consultations for April and May. If that's too long to wait, check out my list of referrals on the Manuscript Critiques page!
Picture book writers: If you would like a fast, top level critique of a manuscript, you can receive that through my Fiverr Gig, which will remain active throughout 2019 except for vacation and travel times.
