"Kirin is a dynamic writing teacher and peerless provider of insightful feedback and constructive critique across multiple genres and disciplines of writing.
Her approach to working with people is dialogic, supportive, and rigorous – she listens effectively, she builds trust, and then offers articulate, effective strategies and suggestions to not only improve a particular piece of writing, but help those she works with to develop insight into their own methods of expression in order to become better writers on their own."
- Hillary Jenks, PhD
Entrusting your work to someone else is always scary, whether it's a close friend or a stranger on the internet. But perfecting a piece of writing requires an outside eye--and, with significant professional experience in editing, proofreading, giving feedback, and doctoring writing across mediums, you can trust mine. I can work with you at any stage, whether your writing is on the page or in your head, for a passion project or on a tight deadline, whether you need a soundboard for brainstorming or want a ghostwriter for your great idea.
In short, I can offer informed, enthusiastic, and transformative help with whatever writing project you've got going on.
My approach to ANY writing consultation is built on three things:
- understanding the rules of the genre (and knowing when to break them!)
- extracting and refining the writer's intentions and vision
- revising with clarity and transparency so writers become self-sufficient
There are a lot of consultation services out there, and you can pay anywhere from $100 to $2000 to put your work in another's persons hands. You will get your money's worth if you choose to work with me. Click on the category you're interested in below to read more about what I can do. If you have any questions about anything, shoot me an email. I have suggested prices that are competitive and reasonable to give you an idea of my price range--but to ensure that both your work and my time are equally valued, I price every consultation on an individual basis. Fill out an inquiry form (click here!), and I will work with you to craft an agreement that we both feel good about. I accept QuickPay, PayPal, Venmo, and Cash App.
To help combat systemic inequalities in our education, economic, and artistic systems, I am always happy to negotiate with marginalized writers.
