consultation, editing, proofreading for a full-length poetry manuscript

Richard Loranger was indispensable in helping me to transform my seemingly ragtag pile of poems into a coherent and powerful manuscript that moves beyond what I felt might be possible, and yet is still true to my voice and vision. He took the time to deeply read each piece, sort and organize along themes and throughlines that took the collection to a new level. His insight helped me to see my own work through new eyes, and his meticulous line edits polished it up to send out into the world. My writing has been elevated thanks to Richard’s deep knowledge of language and poetry, his insight, and his heart-felt care and effort. I am beyond grateful.
