Writing Coach

Note: I am taking a temporary hiatus from coaching in April 2022 but expect to be open for work again in a month or two. Please contact me at minkowitz46@gmail.com for more info. 

Looking for a writing coach and/or editor? I work with memoir writers on either short or book-length works of memoir or literary nonfiction. On occasion, I also work on book proposals.

What I love about coaching and editing is helping you make your writing as powerful (and beautiful) as you would like it to be.

In addition to my 30 years of experience as a professional writer and 20 years of experience teaching memoir, I have a deep background in English literature, including a BA in Literature from Yale University and an Andrew D. White Fellowship in Comparative Literature from Cornell University.

For many years, I have also been a book critic for publications ranging from the New York Times Book Review to The Nation, Salon, Kirkus, and the Village Voice. I have served as a judge for three book awards.

I am happy to work with you to create a plan that meets your budget and your needs. Because I tend to work quickly, my fees are more affordable than those of many other freelance editors. I look forward to hearing from you.
