How It Works

How does it work?
The first meeting is free. You’ll tell me what’s going on, I’ll tell you how I think I might be able to help, and then we’ll figure out if we’re a good match. If you’re in New York City, we can meet in person. Otherwise, we’ll talk on the phone.

What will we talk about?
Meetings tend to be a mishmash of strategizing, brainstorming, editing, work planning, pep talking, and coffee drinking. I especially love helping people think big about arcs and themes, but I’m also a nerd for the details and will happily spend all day talking about sentence structure and tone. I’m really more of a doula than a coach—I help people bring their writing into the world. But if you don’t go in for that kind of woo woo, don’t worry, we never have to mention it again.

How much does it cost?
My fee is $90 an hour and meetings are usually an hour long. That also includes up to 20 pages (double-spaced) of reading. If you need me to read more than that, my reading fee is $30 an hour. I also offer a sliding scale if you need it.
