Journal History


The important thing for a writer is to know what you’re doing with your language and why. —Ursula Le Guin

Unpacking that why often means appealing to deeper principles, leaving writing as such beholden to some higher cause. Thus, for example, she asserts that it is “a writer’s moral duty … to use language thoughtfully and well.” She’s not speaking here of mere correctness, but of clarity, of the work we put in to ensuring others will know what we mean. And she makes one point clear enough: You don’t need to agree with the exact reasons she offers, she just wants to ensure that you have some of your own.
Hire a Hugo & Nebula-nominated writer to give you feedback on your novel manuscript
I’ve reopened my freelance novel critique service!

I have room for 3-4 clients this fall. Here’s how it works.

You send me your COMPLETED fantasy/science fiction novel manuscript. I’ll read it, mark it up, and write a brief edit letter, helping you to think about what’s working and what’s not. While I’ll inevitably discuss your prose/style, this not a copyedit, but a broader consideration of the story you’re trying to tell — and advice on how to tell it more powerfully. I’ll return your manuscript within six weeks with comments aplenty in the margins, and a detailed edit letter addressing issues of plot, character, style, and setting.

Why hire me?
