Schedule a mentoring session

mentoringMENTORING is done internationally by Skype or phone. Sessions are sliding scale. Please choose a fee from the scale that feels both generous and sustainable. Those who are abundant financially, please be generous and pay at the top of the scale so that I have the means to nurture the voices of those who have access to fewer resources. Writers in developing countries or with limited resources who feel resonant with my approach but can’t afford my listed rates, please inquire in the introductory consultation and we will come up with a workable solution.

We will discuss your needs related to mentoring and I will answer your questions about my approach so we can see if it is a good fit for us to work together.
