A Good Eye for Great Books
Durepos Literary offers writers a variety of one-on-one coaching and consulting services.
My approach is collaborative, constructive, and supportive. I believe in assisting writers through open communication and honest feedback, and I shape each session to suit your needs and address your specific goals. Sometimes that means we have a consultation that ends with a high five - other times it means I push you to dig deeper and do better.
Whatever the story, I'm here for every part of the journey.
I have a serious passion for the writing process, and I've helped dozens of authors develop pitches, hone their voices, and transform raw concepts into terrific, successful books.
Whether you’re cracking page one or ready to start shopping your manuscript, my decades of industry experience can help you pursue your writing goals.
These in-depth, single-serving consultations are deep dives into your artistic and publishing goals. Over the course of ninety minutes or so, we'll discuss your writing and vision, consider your current projects, and zero in on your most pressing questions and needs.
The goal of Blue Sky is to be practical and purposeful. We'll break down your big ideas into actionable steps, identify and set achievable goals, and give you the tools you need to move your work forward.
This project-based, yearlong process is a commitment to accountability and action, as well as a financial investment in your work. The goal here is to help you develop a book that satisfies you creatively and appeals to publishers and other literary professionals.
Over the course of our collaboration, I'll be an ongoing resource and advocate for your success. As you develop your book, I'll steer you towards progress, provide support, and give you the feedback you need to make your publishing dreams a reality.
Durepos Literary offers full agency services to select authors.
I work very closely with the writers I represent. As an agent, I adopt my clients' goals as my own and become their partner in success. I assist with the development of book proposals, offer resources and support, and do everything I can to bring manuscripts to print, and connect artistry to audiences.
