The Writer in Residence is open for business

Thank you to everyone who made their way out on a chilly Saturday afternoon to help me kick off my year as regional writer in residence. I’m thrilled to have met so many writers, and I look forward to helping as many people as I can.

To be honest, I’m still trying to figure out how to use this blog. Part of me wants to use it to promote events. Another part wants to incorporate writing advice. The Luddite in me fears I may break the Internet if I post.

I’ll try my best to figure out how to best use this blog function. Right now, I’m going to use it to pass on information about how to get a hold of me and what you can expect.

I’m happy to meet and talk to you about the business and craft of writing. I’m also happy to review your manuscript submissions and give feedback. Before you send me your 500-page manuscript, I have to be fair to everyone. I’m limiting the submissions to 5 – 10 pages (12 point font, double-spaced and single-sided). Please send me an email about meeting, and I can let you know when I’m available. Other clients have already been in touch and my schedule is starting to fill up.

In January, I’m setting my hours as follows:

Tuesdays 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Wednesdays 6:00 – 9:00 pm (except Jan. 20)

Fridays 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Saturdays Noon – 5:00 pm

Shoot me an email at regionalwir@gmail.com to set up a meeting. I’m looking forward to meeting you all.
