Tough Love: A 6-Week ONLINE CNF Workshop with Faith Adiele
For both emerging (you want to get started!) and advanced (you want to finish!) writers with a project. A “project” might be a journal you always meant to turn into stories, a goal to sell a magazine piece or to create stand-alone essays from a manuscript, polishing a portfolio to apply for MFA programs, starting or finishing your book-in-progress, or working on the book proposal.
September 9 – October 18, 2013
Limited to 8 students

Editing, Mentoring & Coaching Services:
Manuscript Critique – Hourly Option ($50.00 / hour)
I read your manuscript twice, provide an in-depth letter of critique (i.e., Developmental or Content Editing), do light Line/Copy Editing, answer follow-up questions and read revised drafts.
Manuscript Critique – Page Option ($5.00 / page of poetry or 250 words prose); 10 page minimum
The same services as above except that additional readings of and feedback on revisions incur the hourly rate.
Line/Copy Editing – Hourly Option ($30.00 / hour)
Line/Copy Editing – Page Option ($3.00 / page of poetry or 250 words prose); 15 page minimum
Done in Track Changes. NOTE: The manuscript should be in its final stages, as I will not address content or structural issues.
PAYMENT: I have included both a per page and a per hour rate, as it can be difficult for new clients to have a sense of how long it will take me to read their work. Note that different reading goals take different times, and early drafts may be slow going. Upon entering into our agreement/rate type/timeframe, you pay a $100.00 deposit, with the remaining balance or refund due upon completion of the work. I’m half-Nigerian, so yes, I negotiate.
$100 Critique/Editing Deposit
Mentoring/Coaching Services ($50.00 / hour)
For longer-term coaching or mentoring for writers who want personal support and advice that is not necessarily limited to a single project. Together, you and I will decide on the structure of the mentorship—what our goals are both for the mentorship as a whole and for each separate stage of it. Contact takes place via email, phone conversations, or both. In addition to critique and line editing, I offer reading recommendations, personalized exercises, writing deadlines—everything you would hope for and expect from a writing coach or a workshop leader.
