I am a creative writing professor and award-winning poet who can ensure your work reaches its full potential. A client’s goals are my priority. I listen to your needs. With my Ph.D. in literature (African and women’s literature) and having taught literature, I use my knowledge of literature as one dimension in my critique of your work. I point out such issues as: character development, credibility, story arc and pacing, and dialogue. I provide guiding questions to help you further develop your work. I also can go ahead with edits too. I also ensure grants and proposals are on target, concise and precise. I have gotten a client a UK business visa, having taken a C quality proposal to an A status. I have been helping people of all ages with their writing for over thirty years.
