Jon's respect and encouragement early on in the writing process gave me the confidence I needed as a new writer. As my manuscript progressed, his keen editing eye and attention to detail was an essential part of making my first novel a reality. Sara Novic, award-winning author of Girl at War and True Biz.
It was a pleasure to have such a great storyteller review my work. If you're looking for feedback on a manuscript, I recommend Jon Papernick. R.L. Maizes, author of We Love Anderson Cooper.
Jon Papernick brings a critical eye and great insight to any manuscript he critiques. His abilities as an editor are top-notch, and he brings years of experience and good instinct to the table. If Jon offers advice on your manuscript, you would do well to listen. Scott A. Johnson, author of Shy Grove: A Ghost Story and The Stanley Cooper Chronicles.
I have taught fiction writing workshops for more than a decade and a half at Emerson College, one of the top regional universities in the north, according to US News and World Report. I have taught introductory, intermediate and advanced writing workshops to undergraduates, as well as workshops for graduate students.
Since 2017 I have also taught in Emerson College‘s Graduate Writing Program in Popular Fiction where I have worked with fantasy, science-fiction, young adult, horror and romance writers. I have also worked one on one advising students with their graduate theses.
