IMPORTANT: Due to volume, I am not entertaining submissions for anything beyond developmental/structural editing. That means that I will not go through your manuscript line by line. I may not even read the whole thing, but rather work off of summaries and excerpts to fix problems with the story itself.

What manuscripts I go through in detail tend to be from particular writing groups I am affiliated with, or publishing houses that have worked with me in the past. Even then, I am fortunate enough that I can pick and choose exactly what I’m interested in, due to having more requests than I can handle.

To submit a manuscript: Send me an elevator pitch and a story summary (limit 400 words) that shows act structure. We’ll start from there.

Do not send me a manuscript if I have not requested it. I will not read it.

If you’re having trouble fitting things into an elevator pitch or a limited summary, don’t fret. It just means you need to sit back and think about what the story centers on. If you have questions, feel free to contact me by email or a comment on the blog. I’ll try to respond as quickly as possible.
