Private Critiques 

Thorough critique. Includes a combination of line-by-line feedback and written comments on strengths and challenges, with a focus on craft elements particular to your genre. Receive a short once-over revision critique on either part or all of your submission (varies depending on the length of your submission).

Fiction: Novel or short story, $5/page (standard manuscript formatting*); flash fiction, $12 for up to 500 words, $15 for 501-750 words; $20 for 750-1000 words. (1000 + is considered a short story rather than flash fiction.)

Poetry: $12/page

*Standard manuscript formatting. (Times New Roman 12 point font, double spaced, 1 inch margins, standard paragraph indents, paginated.)

Light read. If you’d like a quick read-through, the fee is negotiable depending on your needs.

In addition to critiques, I mentor writers who want a combination of critique and instruction. We can design a program to help you study your genre more deeply, prepare an MFA application, familiarize yourself with the path toward publishing, and more.
