writing workshops * coaching * developmental editing

Do you have a story you've always wanted to tell? Are you midway through a writing project and need guidance? I love helping writers generate ideas and develop their stories and would be thrilled to help you with yours.   

I have worked behind the scenes with memoirists, YA novelists, middle-grade novelists, literary fiction writers, essayists, humor writers, horror writers, and fantasy novelists. I offer group and individual workshops. I also offer developmental editing for completed manuscripts and  querying and publishing guidance.  

I know how daunting writing and publishing can be. From my own experiences, I've learned that you can't rush an apprenticeship, but I do believe it helps tremendously to have the right editorial guide in your corner. If you are interested in working together, feel free to shoot me an email  to discuss your goals.

"I look back at a story I wrote five edits ago, and cannot thank Heather enough for helping me through each edit. I wasn't always happy with her comments, but she tells it like it is.  Thank you Heather!" 

— Paula Camacho, Workshop Student
