Mentorship

I am excited to join Flying Books as a poetry mentor! You can read a little about my editing process and apply to work with me here.

I think that most poets have keen eyes because they pay close attention to sound, diction, meaning and the subtle shifts in tone when it comes to language and words. Cassidy has one of the keenest pairs of poet’s eyes I have seen, and this dedication shows when she is providing feedback; it transfers well to other genres, such fiction. During my editing process, I struggled with a particular scene I had written for a short story. Even after weeks of editing and re-writing, the section of the story seemed choppy. Cassidy was able to help me smoothen out the rough edges of this particular scene.”
