"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Openings This Summer for Manuscript Consultations

Got manuscript? I have openings this summer for manuscript consultations.
____________________________________________
 
Distance One-on-One Manuscript Consultation
Poetry, Fiction, or Nonfiction
 
A Month By Mail, Focused Completely On Your Work!
 
Week 1: I receive and focus on a close reading of your manuscript.
 
Week 2: I will closely read a second time, this time making line by line editorial comments, returning the line-edited manuscript to you, and a detailed 6-8 page letter with initial response and suggestions by mail at the end of the first week. Upon your receipt of the manuscript, we’ll have an initial phone call (these usually last around 2 hours) to discuss those suggested edits, focusing that first week primarily on characterization, consistency, voice, the perceived goals of the narrative.
 
Week 3: I’ll compose a second detailed letter, this time focusing on structure and control of the narrative throughline, as well as any other elements I see presenting in the submitted work. This I’ll email to you by midweek, and again, we can schedule a phone meeting at week’s end to address this second editorial run through.
 
Week 4: I’ll ask that you send to me a list of your questions or comments early in the week, which I’ll address in writing, as well as sending you another detailed critique letter, focused on language and new ways of understanding and crafting voice and storytelling. We’ll finish with a third phone meeting to tie up any loose ends, address any remaining questions you might have on the critique provided.
 
So that’s Full Line Edits, Three Critique Letters, and Three Phone Meetings.
 
Contact me at carrollhackettma@gmail.com for a quote and scheduling.
