Overview

A red pen is a thing of devastating uplift, at once creating chaos and from that chaos beauty. I'm a writer and nonfictionist with nearly a decade in publishing. I've published magazine articles (web and print), newspaper articles (web and print), personal essays and creative nonfiction, everything from feature articles to profiles and hard-hitting investigative journalism.

I frequently teach the craft and art of writing, from the ABCs of writing about place to six-week workshops of how to perfect book proposals. I've also taught English as a Second Language and have volunteered at college-reentry programs in New York City.

Work with me to get your manuscript and copy to the finest, publishable shape, whether it be an essay you've wanted to publish for years or a book that isn't quite across the finish line. I'll work alongside you as a confidant, not only an editor, to get you published.
