Editing and Consulting

I’ve spent June reading manuscripts as a guest consultant for Black Lawrence Press, and as the month winds down, I’m reminded of how rewarding and enjoyable this work is. I love getting to know people through their writing, living with their books and characters for days or weeks at time, and analyzing how their manuscripts are put together and what revisions might open up even more doors–either to versions of the existing project, or to connected pieces that might become a whole (other) book! Summer is a great time for me to pour my heart into this kind of work, so if you have a story, essay, chapbook, collection, novel, or memoir that you’d like a new perspective on, check out my editing/consulting page. I’d love to take on more projects in the near future!
