Inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic energy striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time.
~ Brenda Ueland


mentoring

It may be helpful to sit together, one on one, to discuss something about the writing process.  Or perhaps you are in the midst of a project, and have reached a place where you can use some imput. The mentoring experience is designed individually to help meet your particular inclinations and needs.

There are times when one may wish to develop a solo writing practice.  In the course of speaking together we’ll find suitable ways for you to begin writing, and bring an ongoing writing experience into your life.

Regular check-ins with me can help in the 'unearthing' process that encourages words and stories sitting just out of view, thereby fueling your pen, and helping you sustain a rhythm. I will make suggestions to facilitate getting to your notebook. You might share some of your writes with me, via email, phone and/or in person so that I can provide, as I do in groups, a spirit of appreciation and empathy. Reading aloud to one who is listening with the practiced 'ears of the heart' is an important aspect of this work. While not therapy, this process is indeed transformative.

Fees range from $75-$95 per hour. 

 

Cancellation Policy:  Please note that the full fee is due if a cancellation is made less than 48 hour before our booked time.

 

editing

Do you have an essay, story, poem or other writing that can use some 'tweaking'? I will help you to clarify what you wish to say, and to approach your unfolding material in thoughtful, kind ways that support and ground the process. I value your unique voice and style, and work closely with each client to ensure that these are retained during the edit process.

Fees range from $45-$75 per hour, depending on the scope of the project.
