Polish Your Writing with a Professional
For writers who have a work-in-progress—whether a short story, a group of poems, a novel, a personal essay, or a memoir—and would like feedback on higher order concerns such as theme, style, structure, and voice. Line-editing may also be included.
Mentoring & Coaching
For writers who are stuck or overwhelmed, who would like to find joy and inspiration in their writing practice, or who want thorough guidance and feedback on their writing with the opportunity to establish an ongoing working relationship with a professional writer.
For writers who would like coaching and consultation during the MFA selection and application process. Instructors will offer feedback on the application packet as well as on any personal statements or accompanying critical essays.
