I am a specialist in short fiction.  This includes flash fiction, microfiction, and short stories of fewer than 3500 words.   My MFA is in fiction with a specialty in short fiction.   Collections of stories or tales come under this category as does short prose poetry.

Fees and submissions are as follows:

Short stories: up to 3500 words: $75.  Editing and detailed commentary on all aspects including structure and voice. I offer suggestions for improvement.

$3 per each additional page (approx 300 words).

Submission Requirements and Suggestions:

  • Electronic submissions are preferred. This allows me to use the Comments and Track Changes functions in Word, so you can see each item individually. I use Comments  throughout the manuscript and will offer a written evaluation and critique in addition to comments.
  • Track Changes allows you to review all copyedits before accepting them. For hard copy submissions, edits are noted on the copy itself and sent back by snail mail.
  • Double space all pages.
  • Margins of at least 1 inch on all sides
  • Standard font: 12 point Times or Times Roman only.
  • Running header on each page with page number, name and title
