Welcome to my site—I'm so glad you stopped by! Maybe you looked up my address after taking my class or attending one of my workshops, or maybe I published your poem or short story in Boston Literary Magazine. It's possible we met when you submitted your manuscript to Big Table Publishing and we worked on it together and turned it into a book that was even better than you expected, or maybe you know me from the Newton Writers and Poets Center. However you traveled, it's really nice to have you here!
Since 1990 my goal as a coach has been to help clients improve their book with specific in-depth feedback and general suggestions that they can apply to all future projects in order to become better writers. My favorite writing tips and red flags can be found in my writing guide, The Revision Process.
For reader reviews, please check out Amazon.com.
If youíre considering hiring a coach to help with your manuscript, please contact me and find out how to get a FREE EVALUATION: Iíll review and give feedback on your query/synopsis and first three pages.
If you've got a poem or short story you think is good enough to publish, feel free to submit it to us at Boston Literary Magazine. If you've got a completed chapbook that feels like a good fit with our Submission Guidelines please check out Big Table Publishing Company.
