I’m a straight-forward editor who will provide honest feedback, suggestions and resources.

Are you a fiction writer? I’ll collaborate with you to explore the story you’re meant to tell and together we’ll polish your pages, from dialogue and characterization to filtering and rising stakes.

Nonfiction? Together we will review your project goals and explore everything from optimal organization to clarity of message.

Contact me and we’ll create a package based on your needs, whether it be a small sample critique or a full manuscript edit.


Tara is a highly generous and detailed editor. As a new writer her feedback was exactly what I was craving. Reading her feedback was one “Aha!” moment after another. She seemed to have just the right words to get me thinking about how to polish my stories and move them to the next level. Extremely grateful that she took time to read my work. Thank you so much Tara! You rocked my MOOC experience.

Fantastic critique of my assignment, Tara! You are able to sink your teeth into many points that help this writer see the ‘flaws through the forest’, and I am very grateful. Thank you again!
