Working With Writers

Working One on One with Writers

In the past I have led a weekly writers group that meets on a conference call; that class is currently on hiatus while I recover from surgery, but I am working with individual writers one on one, either in person or on the phone.

Writers share recent pages and receive constructive, supportive critique which encourages steady production towards an end goal, usually a completed draft. My writers tend to focus on either creative non-fiction or literary fiction, but other forms are welcome.

As a writer, working with Tobey has been an exceptional experience.  She has edited my work with a keen eye and made critical suggestions to stories and grammar that enhanced my writing.  The relationship has been very collaborative and allowed me to maintain the integrity of my work, which I appreciate.  And her expertise doesn’t end there.  Tobey has made herself available for assistance with marketing and promotion.  I am fortunate to have found Tobey for her editing services.  I have been so pleased with her work that I recommended her to some of my writing peers, who were similarly satisfied.

I really value my writer, editor relationship with Tobey. She keeps me in line with grammar, plot, and consistent rendering of my characters. Her suggestions go beyond style, and drive the story concept. She’s helped to mature my writing technique, and her expertise has been instrumental to my growth.
