Mentorships & Courses

One-on-One Mentorships

Whether you’re looking for feedback, guidance & instruction, or support for a sustained project, I’m excited to help you achieve your goals through private consultation.¬†I love working with writers of all levels and in multiple genres.

Available topics include:

  • MFA Applications
  • Fellowships & Grants / Residency Applications
  • Generating new work
  • Sustained projects / revision
  • Applying for Tenure-Track Jobs

What is the process?

After determining availability, I’ll ask you to fill out a form detailing your background, goals, areas of interest and/or project. This will help me develop a suggested plan for the initial session(s) based on your needs, including hourly or package rate. Follow up sessions are available as needed, and I’ll also be available through “office hours” for quick questions and checking in on progress.

Each session includes prep work (such as analyzing materials, developing suggested strategies, and/or organizing craft exercises), phone consultation to discuss feedback and strategies, and follow-up notes/written feedback. Phone consultations are conducted via Facebook Messenger, Facetime Audio, or Skype Audio.

“Office Hours” are conducted via Facebook Messenger or Skype (for text-based chats), or via email.

How much does it cost?

Sessions are charged by hourly rate or as part of a package, based on hourly rate of $45-$65 and depending on amount of feedback or guidance needed.

Payments are invoice via Paypal. 50% is invoiced prior, with remaining amount to be paid after completion of sessions.
