Manuscript Critiquing

Manuscript Evaluation and Critiquing Service for Writers

Years ago, I taught creative writing to young adults and children and enjoyed it very much. Occasionally, I still tutor young people and provide manuscript evaluations for both new and experienced writers. My fee schedule follows the fee guidelines as set by the Writer’s Union of Canada.  I am an independent freelance writer and not presently affiliated with the Writers Union.

While earning my Master of Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia, I took a 3 credit course on Teaching Creative Writing with Dr. Luanne Armstrong.  It was the only course of its kind in Canada. I’ve studied under the tutelage of distinguished writers, Wayne Grady, Sioux Browning, Glen Huser and also M.G. Vassanji through Humber College. My thesis was written under the mentorship of the internationally acclaimed author and Giller nominee, Gail Anderson-Dargatz.

If you have a fiction or nonfiction manuscript that needs refreshing, my detailed notes will help you gain new perspective. Please contact me for a fee schedule and for more information. Currently, my agenda is full until March of 2018.  Due to this, I can only accept the rare project  where I believe I can make a difference, and that fits into my tight timeline.  I will however, be able to recommend courses, workshops and other excellent writers who may be able help you to develop your particular story.

On this journey, be brave and follow your heart.  Be guided by spiritual connections, your instincts and intuition.  Keep writing and creating.   Above all, nurture your writing and all who believe in you.
