If you are the kind of person who prefers to work on your writing privately, I completely understand.

I work with a small number of people on a one-to-one basis. Consultations are done via Skype or telephone and can be arranged to suit each person's writing schedule and preferences (ie. weekly, bi-weekly, monthly).

You may be working on a book-length manuscript or looking to hone and polish smaller pieces, either for submission to magazine and journals or simply for your own satisfaction.

Please tell me a bit about yourself and your writing in the form below.

Don't stress too much over your answers. In fact, please don't stress over them at all.

I'll respond shortly with an invitation to have a free 15-minute chat about your writing project(s) and how we might work together.

After that, we can both decide how and if we'd like to proceed.


Initial 15-minute introductory session is FREE.

$115 for ONE 1-hr session

$440 for FOUR 1-hr sessions

$630 for SIX 1-hr sessions

$1200 for TWELVE 1-hr sessions

Notes: Rates are based on a maximum of 2500 words (approx. 10 pages) per session and are in Canadian Dollars.

To all fees must be added the holy Harmonized Sales Tax of 13%. (That's the Ontario rate. Sorry!)

For larger works, or if you prefer to work on a greater number of pages per session, an additional reading fee (based on the number of sessions and to a maximum of 100 pages) applies. Submissions greater than 100 pages are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. It is very rare that I work with someone on a full-length manuscript, but I am always happy to look at and discuss the arc, shape and structure of a book-length work, and to ensure that the work we do in micro can be applied to the manuscript as a whole.
