MEMOIR / PERSONAL NARRATIVE / PERSONAL ESSAY
I have three ways of working with writers who focus on personal material.
The first involves writing only, where we work together on a specific project, whether a batch of individual pieces or a manuscript draft. ($45/hour, the standard rate for editing)
The second involves a broader approach of the individualized tutorial, a combination of writing, reading, and study of the genre, whether working on short pieces that will eventually be shaped together in some way, or working on a longer piece. (Click Here)
The third way is the workshop, also appropriate for those at any stage of the process.
If you are a beginning poet or advanced — closeted, stuck, or preparing to complete a manuscript, I provide an individually arranged series of exchanges of your poems with extensive response on the poems themselves and in accompanying letter, via snail mail or otherwise.
1) $250 per batch of up to 10 pages of poetry, each poem on a separate page.
2) Manuscript review, editing, formatting:
$500 for a chapbook
