Introduction: I collaborate with writers (of any age, on any level, and under whatever impulse) whose goal is to work within traditional literary forms. My writers come to me with diagrams, scraps of memory, assignments from junior high, fiction manuscripts. Our new shared goal is to transform their fragment, thesis, remnant (sometimes of-a-life) into a novel, a short story, essay, poem, play, a memoir. I treasure my client's working efforts, records of their progress in self-expression. Their accounts, their scraps of scribbled thought, I preserve as if they were archives of symbolical import. Which, of course, they are. They are evidence that writing practice is about much more than the script story due tomorrow. Writing about how you feel, think, know, observe is a path to what I believe to be the treasure of life —awareness of who you are. I support your writing quest, not only for the camaraderie in our mutual pursuit of truth but for the joy of our shared insight, shared recognition. During this unprecedented time of statutory social distancing, where the physical intimacy of close collaboration has become health-threatening, I offer my services via ZOOM.

Lovering helped me write a creative short story about my trip from Peru, where I was raised, to the U.S. After my lessons I felt much more confident about writing and about myself. Lovering is an amazing teacher, I learned so much!

A friend of mine requested that I write a letter of reference for her a few years ago. I had very little time to fulfill her request so I called upon Lovering to write the letter for me. I gave Lovering a list of my friend's outstanding qualities and she added the prose. The result was a top notch letter of reference and my friend got the job! Sincerely, Donna Dixon

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do not charge for the initial consultation. I give discounts for multiple scheduled reading and writing lessons per week. For most assignments, I charge a $45-$50/hour fee or a $125 flat fee for less than 2000 words. I do not do translations.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For clients who have written products, I proofread the material for spelling and grammar and make improvements to diction, word choice, sentence structure, flow, and fluency. For clients with ideas, but nothing yet on paper, I suggest we approach the outline of the desired product through a ZOOM or Ctelephone discussion. Fiction clients should be prepared to chat about the following story elements: 1. Character (source of conflict), 2. Setting (the geography), 3. Theme (premise), 4. Structure, 5. Point of view, 6. Conflict, 7. Foreshadowing.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Associate Producer of Documentary Film, Swedish Television. Antioch New England: PhD Studies in Environmental Memoir. Southern NH University: MBA. Hampshire College Graduate School of Business: MS CED.
