Writing Consulting Services and Rates

When you come to me for a consultation, you can think of me as a writing coach, a writing trainer, or a writing therapist—whichever metaphor works best for you is great by me. Consultation sessions are booked upon receipt of payment, and I am happy to reschedule with twenty-four-hour advance notice. When we book time together, please be aware that the clock starts ticking when our scheduled time begins.

Writer’s block, writing strategies and other consultation services: $60/hour session / $50/hour with 5+ sessions booked in advance

Accountability consulting (5+ sessions booked weekly in advance, includes daily exchange of accountability texts): $50/hour session

Manuscript consultation: $50/hour

Wherever you are in the writing process, I can tailor a critique to your needs. I have worked with writers on:

• full manuscripts

• the first five to one-hundred pages of manuscripts

• short story collections

• short stories

• query and submission preparation

(Manuscript consultation is for fiction and creative non-fiction writers only—scholars, please look at my academic editorial page for stylistic and developmental editorial services.)


If you will be paying me through your institution, there is a paperwork fee of $20.

I also accept payment directly through Venmo, PayPal, and Chase QuickPay for no extra charge.
