Poetry Forge



Coaching & Editorial Services

Let me begin by saying that if you need support around your writing or project, we can probably come up with a way to work together. You should never hesitate to get in touch and schedule a complimentary phone call, to talk through what’s possible.

An experienced editor, book reviewer, and teacher for over 20 years, I enjoy working one on one with writers, artists, and cultural workers as they conceive, develop, and birth their work, whether it takes the form of a poem, portfolio, manuscript, performance, or something else creative where you think I’d be a suitable partner for your process.

I bring my experience in the areas of creative writing, dance, visual art, performance, activism and interdisciplinary collaboration to our conversations, critiques, and editorial process.

Our work together might include a portfolio review, manuscript feedback, coaching, or occasional phone or video consultations as you develop an idea or project, investigate a question or particular challenge, or move forward on a manuscript that matters to you.

Get in touch to discuss how I may support your vision and goals.

One time, hour-long consultations are available for a flat fee of $100 but if we decide to work together over time, the rate drops to $75 per hour. In some cases it will make more sense to offer you a project rate, which varies depending on the nature and scale of the work.
