*Services Suspended: As of April 2017, I have accepted a full-time position as a copywriter/editor for The Doctors Company. Therefore, I am not currently offering editorial services, but please feel free to contact me for a referral.*



I am attaching some highlights of my editorial services for publishers, writers, and scholars.

I offer services including

  • Copyediting creative books: poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction
  • Copyediting craft-of-writing books: poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction
  • Copyediting scholarly books: humanities and social sciences
  • Manuscript critiques: MFA application portfolios, book and chapbook manuscripts
  • Workshops: poetry and prose
  • Writing for publication
  • Hourly coaching

My workshop offerings for writers’ groups will soon include something I am calling the How-to-Publish Roadshow, which will help new writers look like pros as they send their work to literary journals. More soon!


“Just what I needed for the story! Thanks for your insightful critique.”

“It’s been a complete pleasure working with you.”

“I’m so thrilled at your copyediting job, with such helpful thoughts and suggestions.”

“I’ve loved working with you, and you are such a close reader.”

As I transition away from my role as Admissions Advisor and Director of Communications for IvyClimbing Education Services, and toward working independently with students on their writing for college admissions and writing that prepares them for college admissions (writing for publication, anyone?), I am developing service packages for

  • College Application Essays
  • Summer Program Application Essays
  • Writing for Publication

Hourly tutoring is also available.
