From a specific craft series, to one hour lunch and learns, to weekly sessions, or a fun and silly event with drinks—I’ll work with you to create something unique and special.

One on One Consultation
Though workshops are the beating heart of Fledgling, Sammi also offers consultation:
In person Prose Consultations (fiction or nonfiction up to 15 pages per hour session) We'll meet at an agreed upon location and spend sessions going over major notes on the work and talking about writing struggles both on the page and at the desk. Sessions include a line edited manuscript, a page of notes, and a list of recommended prompts to try at home. Sessions can be on going or one offs.
$50/15 double spaced pages
College Applications (either MFA or undergrad applications). Edits and comments are done through Google docs. A face to face session is included in your first read (either in person or over an online conferencing platform). We’ll discuss how to strengthen your essay, personal statement, and/or writing portfolio. Number of sessions based on your specific needs.
Pricing varies according to need starting at $35
Full Manuscript Consultation (books and other projects up to 100,000 words) I'll do line edits, comment within the text, and provide a two to three page letter describing my reactions and suggestions for character development, plot, and clarity. To keep my costs as low as possible I charge by pages rather than time. You can expect a turn around of two weeks for up to 100 pages and up to a month for longer works.
$40/15 double spaced pages (a 200 page manuscript would be around $500)
