Work Together

Working together.

Sometimes, it just takes a fresh set of eyes – a new take on the story, the essay – or outsider ears to listen to your tape.  It can make all the difference.  All of a sudden, you're not alone, and the person who is reading and working alongside is pulling for you, too.  I have years of experience teaching, tutoring, revising, editing, and more.  I especially love thinking about  structure and innovative nonfiction.  Let's talk about working together on your project.
