Guiding you along the writer's path
EditingA developmental editor helps writers hone their work-in-progress. For voice, heart, vision, yes!—and for style, organization, and clarity, too. Do you have a draft of a memoir, novel, or screenplay? Are you wondering, "Now, what?" My feedback can pave the way toward your publishing goals.
CoachingA writing coach is a literary fairy godmother. She can charm your plot or transform your writing practice so it works magic for you! I've earned my wand helping castles-full of writers abracadabra the straw of great ideas into golden sheaves of pages. I can help you, too.
I'm JamieSome writers long for a starred Kirkus Review, a Newbery Medal, or an O. Henry Award. Me? I dream of seeing my name on your acknowledgements page. From the moment I facilitated my first writer’s group, I’ve been on a mission: to help other writers reach their goals.
