Having worked for small presses such as Seven Stories Press and Sundress Publications, literary magazines such as Gordon Square Review, and individual clients such as Carley Moore, Tiffany Tsao, and Sandra Gail Lambert, I can bring you a variety of skills in editing and promotions.
I bring 15+ years of experience as a reader, editor, teacher, public relations strategist, and developmental editor for literary magazines, literary organizations, small presses, and individual clients to your ongoing project.
Developmental Edits / 12 cents a word
Has your short story or novel been rejected by all your top-choice magazines and publishers? Do you want to know the strengths of what you have as well as the weaknesses? Do you want suggestions for structural rewrites? Is you collection lacking continuity to hold all the pieces together? These are all issues I can address in developmental edits on your piece. Be it a novel, a short story collection, an essay, or a memoir, I have the experience to help you present your best work when you go out for submission to editors, agents, or small presses.
Social Media Management for Magazines and Presses / $200 a month
For $200 monthly, I will take over your social media with 2-3 posts a week. Having worked in social media management, having done PR for individual authors, and having taken trainings to remain up-to-date with 4 Mile Circus, I have a variety of grassroots techniques to make your online community grow and thrive. For a flat $200 fee, I will run a 1 hour training with your existing social media team to instill best practices and strategy.
Guest Teaching / $75 an hour
Does your organization rely on storytelling, but the people who work for you have a hard time identifying a story and using techniques to draw it out of your client? Do you have a class full of creative writers who need inspiration, support, and technical and business-of-writing talks? Do you run a book group who might be interested in a guest speaker with knowledge of trans and queer literature? I have appeared across the country as a guest speaking on all these subjects in venues such as Bluestockings Books, New School University, Ohio State University, Gotham Writers’ Workshop, Brookdale Community College, and more.
