  • Expert advice from a veteran professional
  • Unique literary opportunity


Get inspired by your time in New Orleans as we meet in the French Quarter, the iconic heartbeat of the city that inspired generations of writers, from William Faulkner to Tennessee Williams to Anne Rice. Whether you need help with the start of your novel, you need a push to get started, or maybe you just enjoy the craft of writing, I can help you improve, sharpen and strengthen your skills in a focused one-on-one setting. We will meet in a coffee shop frequented by the locals, and I will give you honest but constructive feedback. My professional critique will explain what you did right, what you did wrong, and most importantly, how it can be improved. Give me a complete tale, a small part of a story, or simply stream-of-consciousness musings. Bring your writing with you or email me in advance - you decide the amount of time I spend on reading versus discussion, and you ask the questions you want answered. I suggest you provide about 1,500 words (probably six pages) for me to critique. I think that is enough to discern your strengths and weaknesses, but you are welcome to give me more or less. But remember the more I read in advance, the less time we have for our meeting.

Important Information

  • I recommend you email me your writing in advance of our meeting so I can edit and critique it. The longer the piece, the more time I will spend on it, so the shorter our in-person meeting. Six or seven pages is a good guide.
