writing workshops * coaching * developmental editing

I love helping writers generate ideas and develop their stories. 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 virtual group and private workshops for writers at various levels who need help generating material or propelling forward their works-in-progress. I also offer developmental editing for those with completed first drafts, and querying and publishing guidance for those seeking to bring their work to market.

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 eye in your corner. If you are interested in working together, feel free to shoot me an email. I truly love  supporting writers and would be honored to help you achieve 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
