The most engaging and insightful writing requires several rounds of revision. For writers who would like to receive further guidance in the revision and editing process, I provide extensive feedback to help shape drafts into polished and publishable work.



On her blog, Laurie offers friendly and invaluable advice, such as why to start with an image (not a prompt), how to show your genius, the 1-2-3 steps to discovering your hero’s journey, and much more.
