I work with a wide range of publications, and can contribute features, essays, trend pieces, service articles, web content, and more. My specialties include travel, education, history, and health. As the editors I’ve worked can attest (see sidebar), I love to brainstorm story ideas and think of unique ways to package ideas. Please contact me to discuss your publication’s needs.
EDITING & COACHING
I also work with individuals one-to-one on their essay and travel story revisions, offering line editing, structural guidance, and (typically for travel) alternate story angle advice, as well as submission suggestions for publications that might be a good fit. I’m happy to work with you by phone, email, or in-person for those in the Washington, D.C. region, and can provide several references from writers I’ve coached.
Similar to the How To Break Into Travel Writing workshop that I teach, I offer individual coaching on pitching story ideas. Based on your story, we create a list of potential outlets to send your work, brainstorm alternative angles, and discuss where to find the most useful writer’s guidelines; then use that information to write a pitch letter that best sells your story.
Contact me for more information and rates. I look forward to hearing from you!
