Hello! I’m Kim.
I’m a developmental editor, writing coach, and workshop leader with an obsession for artful narratives, exquisite sentences, and helping my clients transform their manuscripts into the best books possible.
For over ten years I’ve spoken at writing events, lead writing workshops, and worked as a private coach with writers who are looking to improve their writing skills, finish their books, and get their work ready for publication.
My own creative work has been published in The Iowa Review, North American Review, Denver Quarterly, Alaska Quarterly Review, and many other journals and publications. I also regularly write on the craft of writing and am a monthly contributor for Scribbler (the book subscription box company).
Who I work with—
My clients are novelists, memoirists, essayists, and short story writers. Some of my clients are interested in traditional publishing and some are pursuing self-publishing.
As a developmental editor, once a writer has completed the best draft of their book or piece that they can, I come in to help with the rewriting and revision process. My job is to help make an assessment of what needs to be done to get the project into the most readable shape possible.
On my site, you’ll find blog posts on creative writing, free resources, and opportunities to work with me if you’re wanting personalized help.
