Consultations

I offer manuscript consultations for poetry chapbooks (up to 30pp) and full-length collections (up to 75pp).

Editing feedback includes in-line edits, organizational and ordering feedback, and a final written summary that includes recommended next steps for the particular manuscript.

My rates are $30-75/hr, depending on the type of editing, OR a flat fee per manuscript. My aim is to offer affordable editing feedback, but I do want to acknowledge that men often ask me to read their work for free, and that I am a busy parent, editor and writer myself.

I’m also happy to consider editing needs that fall outside of those outlined above, such as proofreading manuscripts (poetry or prose) or providing feedback on individual poems/essays.
