I'm a manuscript editor who cuts through the myths and delusions about the writing process, while honoring a writer's unique vision and voice. I edit fiction (all genres), nonfiction, and poetry. I have often been called a guru of plot, structure, and character.
Administer grants and provide technical support to Maryland writers and literary arts organizations. Partner for projects such as Literary Arts Week, literary arts summits, and literary arts/book festivals with local, regional, and national writers and organizations. Administer the Maryland Poetry Out Loud program for the National Endowment for the Arts and The Poetry Foundation. POL is a national recitation competition for high school students that teaches them about their literary heritage and builds their confidence and public speaking skills. The Maryland program was the fifth highest in the country in 2015 (tenth anniversary of the program), with 16,000 students participating.
Crafting a work of fiction is a gloriously arduous process. With over twenty years of experience at one of the big NYC houses, I can help.
