Consultation

CREATIVE WRITING CONSULTATION

Let’s work together. 

It’s an honor to work with dedicated purposeful writers. I offer consulting and manuscript critique for writers at every stage of development.  For beginning writers, sessions provide gentle support to help you focus and move fast forward on your project while developing skills.  For those with substantially completed manuscripts, tutorial sessions give you tools to improve your habits of prose, and organize and develop your content.

If you’re looking for a quick way to move forward in your work, bring your questions and short writing sample of two to five pages for a one hour session where you’ll get tools, insights, and exercises to move forward effectively with your writing project

For those with a substantially worked manuscript looking for help with structural and style concerns; includes reading of ten pages, detailed written comments, and one hour consultation

Book Development — Includes 9 one hour consults and manuscript critique of 100 pages  $1499

This allows for a guided support once you’ve made a commitment to your project.  We’ll work in a time frame of at least nine weeks and up to nine months.  Each session includes:

  • reading of ten pages and detailed written comments
  • tools, exercises and insights to your work
  • help developing your personal writing goals and calendar
  • information on seeking publication and the publishing industry
  • and more

Kathleen provided an extremely thoughtful and thorough analysis of the query package for my novel that included the query letter and first ten pages. She offered valuable insights and identified problem areas that I was able to fix. Can’t thank her enough!
