In addition to editing, I teach creative writing and serve as an emerging writer mentor at AWP and the Center for Fiction. I'm also a writer myself, so I know how it feels to be on the other side of the desk. I'm interested in literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir, and am always delighted to see my clients' books make their way into the world.
