Picture Book Critiques, Revision Workshops, and Editing

I love helping writers shape stories to best reflect their voice and vision for a project.

To that end, I freelance edit and edit independently published picture books.

I also offer one-hour video picture book critiques for picture book manuscripts ($150) as well as optional follow-ups on revisions with line notes ($40).

Please reach out below if you'd like to find out more about either or schedule with me!

In addition, I facilitate online picture book revision workshops: "A Meaningful Method for your Work in Progress" and Picture Book Groups for Writers. Drop me a line to be in the loop for the next!

Finally, if your writing group or organization would like to host me for an online or in-person interactive picture book revision workshop, please let me know.

 

A Meaningful Method for Your Work in Progress

This half-day workshop is supportive, interactive, and will help you revise your manuscript, reflect on your writing journey, receive inspiration, and revitalize YOUR storytelling—all in one sitting! Well, there will be a few breaks sprinkled in.

This is truly a meaningful revision method that focuses on you as a writer and your picture book manuscript in a unique way that will have a lasting impact on your story—and your vision of yourself as an artist!

Two scholarships are always available at a significant discount for creators with marginalized/underrepresented voices in publishing—your voices are vital to our field and to children. I typically offer this independently, but if you'd like to host it through a writing group or organization, please reach out.
