work with me
I have two decades of experience working as an editor on novels, memoirs, nonfiction books, and poetry books, for large, small, independent, and academic presses. I am an experienced typesetter and book designer (most frequently for Ugly Duckling Presse, but also elsewhere) and print broker. I offer all of these services, together or separately, at sliding-scale rates. I have sat on juries for numerous national fellowships and grants, and have taught creative writing at the BFA and MFA levels for 15 years. One of my favorite things to do is to talk to writers about their manuscripts in progress and to offer support, kind and constructive critique, and personalized guidance. If you are interested in working with me on any of the above, contact me for details and references.
For emerging writers and especially for people interested in entering the field of literary translation, I am happy to talk informally or to give spontaneous feedback about works in progress. I reserve a few “office hours” per month to do this without any charge — get in touch if you are interested! (Scheduling these hours has been the biggest challenge, one I’m working on addressing.)
