POETRY EDITING, COACHING, WORKSHOPS

PRIVATE EDITING / COACHING

As a literary journal poetry editor and writing teacher, I’ve read and edited hundreds of poems, from beginning writers through emerging and established poets. I’ve worked with scores of adults as well as college and high school students to help them improve their writing and gain confidence to submit their work to journals and magazines, both print and online, many of which have been published. In addition, I’ve edited short stories, novels, and screenplays for private clients, also several of which have been published.
