Writing Coach & Holistic Editor: Personal/Academic Writing

What does it mean to me to be a writing coach and holistic editor? First and foremost, it means that I never take on clients unless I’ve met them in person, through a visual call (e.g. FaceTime, Skype etc.), or have at least managed a chat by phone. Over time, I have learned that an open conversation about writing, and my process, is the best way to assess compatibility. There is no charge for this first “meeting” because I totally accept that my approach is not going to be right for everyone.

In general, the goal is not to fix things for you, or even to solely offer suggestions and commentary. Tailored to your specific needs, I demonstrate new thinking patterns and offer new skills so that you are able to improve the ways you express yourself and your ideas. I aim to work myself out of a job by making editorial practice vivid and accessible.

Payment Structures/Options
For longer term, larger scope projects, I prefer to work on a negotiated retainer.
For shorter term, smaller scope projects, my base rate is $60/hr.
Fixed-rate, per project billing is also available to suit specific budgets.
