In editing Claiming Our Callings, I had the privilege of working with fourteen different professors from St. Olaf College. I've also consulted on individual book length projects--novels, memoirs, and poetry manuscripts--and I work on a daily basis editing the creative work of students.
I love helping writers in various stages of development and I'm open to both one-time consultations and more systematic, long-term coaching sessions. I can offer advice about ordering your poetry manuscript, developing the fragments of your memoir into a more cohesive whole, or plotting/pacing your novel. Having trouble getting started or keeping on track? I can design personalized prompts and deadlines to help you write the book you've been carrying around inside you. Some editors ultimately try to fit writers into their own aesthetic; I'm most interested in discerning your particular gifts and then helping you hone those gifts.
