Are you looking for help with a writing project,
application, book-length manuscript, or just to improve your writing skills? I
can help. If you need assistance because English isn’t your primary language, I
can coach you and check your copy—before it’s submitted.
For $30 an hour I will read and critique your
work, get it ready for publication, or just offer creative feedback.
Try me out first—for free.
Send me up to 1000 words and see if my skills fit your needs.
I can handle narrative fiction, memoir, personal
essay, non-fiction, college applications, and other writing that needs a private
critical reaction before you present it to the world. Please, no poetry
or science fiction.
Let’s start a dialogue. We can meet in person in
Manhattan or work over phone and email. Contact me at

Deanna F. says: "Deirdre's services were
invaluable to me. She was specific and exacting. As I wrote several pages for my
thesis, she sat by my side and questioned me on what I meant to say, guiding my
thoughts and writing. Deirdre's skills are a display of craftsmanship,
experience, integrity, and personal dedication. I give her the highest
recommendation and know that whoever receives her services will be better off."

knows what's missing and how to fix it. She's a sensitive critic and
enthusiastic supporter—two attributes that you want in any writing coach."

Emily M. says: "I can't thank you enough for your thorough and thoughtful treatment of my book."
Elissa D. says: "Deirdre's constructive criticism has been instrumental in helping me re-write my stories and chapters of my novel. She offers insightful edits about both the overall story and the small details that make a story stand out."
Susan D. says "I always look forward to Deirdre's comments on my work. It is clear that she has spent time thoughtfully finding ways to make the piece stronger. And she does so in a very supportive, positive manner."
