I work with GrubStreet, the nation’s leading independent creative writing center, as a manuscript coach. I love character- and voice-driven narratives, off-beat stories, and dark humor. I’m particularly interested in work that explores transnational, cross-cultural, working class, and feminist themes. Currently, I consult on:
Short & Flash Fiction
Agent Query Letters
& Querying Strategies
Submitting to magazines, fellowships,
Applying to MFA programs
& writing the personal statement
As an editor, I work largely on book-length projects, readying them for publication or for submission to agents. Most recently, I have worked on a collection of short stories set in Miami and Jamaica, a historical novel centering on the Civil War, a memoir exploring racial identity, and an illustrated inspiration guide for adults. I offer the following services:
