Editorial Consultant and Writing Coach
Doug specializes in editing and providing constructive feedback for all narrative-based writing, be it short stories, novellas, novels, memoirs, or narrative essays. While literary fiction is his primary focus, he appreciates genre-bending work that defies easy categorization. Doug loves working with emerging and established writers committed to honing their craft and elevating their manuscripts to achieve new heights. Given that much of his fiction incorporates historical elements, he has completed extensive research in the areas of stand-up comedy, nineteenth and twentieth-century American history, post-WW II Japan, and Jewish culture. Aside from narrative manuscripts, he is eager to assist writers with book/story research and literary magazine submission strategies.
He also has considerable experience editing grants, academic papers, college and graduate school admissions essays, statements of purpose, and cover letters. Please contact him for rates, availability, and testimonials.
