About this Service

Depending on your needs, I am available to provide line-edits and revision letters on book-length projects, fine-tune short stories and essays, and lead you in relevant craft readings and didactics that will expand and clarify your goals for your draft(s). I have worked both undergraduates and graduates as well as working adults with little to no experience in the creative writing classroom. While asynchronous reading and consultation may be the better for choice for some people with longer drafts in process, I am also happy to lead you in personalized workshops, with broader lessons involved, over zoom.

About this Lister

I am a novelist, essayist, short story writer and professor with twelve years of experience writing and teaching at Columbia University and Bennington College. In addition to publishing four books of acclaimed fiction, my fiction and non-fiction has appeared in Harper's, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Paris Review, The Best American Short Stories, and The Best American Essays. I have experience both leading creative writing classrooms, in seminars and workshops, and providing private manuscript consultations. You may read more about me at

Background and Expertise

Evaluations on my classes have always been uniformly laudatory, with particular emphasis from students on how my instruction has improved their lexicon and understanding of style, analysis of figurative language; I emphasize an approachable interpretation of craft texts and theory that allows students to leave the class much more confident in writing (and reading!) alone.

Should you wish to discuss working together, please send a no-more than five page sample of current work.
