I do developmental edits on manuscripts of novels or short stories, providing critiques of overall story structure, character arc, and trends in scene-level rendering.
I taught high school literature and writing from 1999 - 2015, several years of which was part-time, allowing me to 1) get an MFA in writing from Pacific University, and 2) teach adult fiction writers through the University of Wisconsin.
