About Chas Carner

Chas Carner is a writing coach and consultant.

Stop talking and start writing. Novice or seasoned professional, we all find ourselves "stuck" sometimes, getting our ideas out of our heads and onto the page. I can help. I'm a(n):

* Ivy-educated creative writing and film studies graduate
* Multi-award-winning author of novels, short stories and documentaries
* Certified teacher of students, grammar-through-college and adult continuing ed
* Effective editor of other writers' material, guiding them from concept to manuscript to agent to publisher to bookstore shelf
* 35-year freelance professional with credits and connections in most media, including: television sitcoms, soaps and movies; feature and documentary films; long- and short-form fiction; travel books; periodicals and newsletters; essays, journals, reviews, blogs and e-zines

I work one-on-one, in intensive one-hour sessions. I draw upon numerous references and resources, personal and professional experiences, an extensive private library of literature and text books - even my own colleagues and collaborators - to inspire, enrich and facilitate your creative process. Usually, I work from hard copy only; (for your protection as well as mine, please no unsolicited e-ttached manuscripts.) Under special circumstances, long-distance e-mail/phone counseling can be arranged. My Upper Westside Manhattan location is conveniently near 1, 2, 3, B & C subway-, as well as M-5, -86 & -104 bus-, lines.

Google me. Then, if you're interested, call or e-me for a quick intro or consultation, to discuss rates, and to schedule an appointment. I hope to hear from you soon. Keep up the good stuff 'til then!

Then, as a graduating senior, I won a prestigious award for one of my short stories, which gave me the confidence to move to New York and pursue my professional writing career.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Most writers come to me with their manuscripts in various stages of undress. I work with them on story & character development, plot & structure, dialog & action.
