Coaching & Consultation

I love collaborating with writers on craft issues, stories, novels and narrative nonfiction – I think of my developmental approach as getting to the essence of the project, and helping clients see the possibilities that can be teased out to strengthen the work. Together, we’ll work on things like voice, point-of-view, character development and plot-point pacing, in addition to other craft aspects. I work in “track changes,” commenting throughout your piece, and once we’ve scheduled, my turn-around time is fairly quick.

For book coaching on an on-demand basis, check out my coaching/consultation overview here.

I also am available for a full developmental edit.

When you study writing with Suzy Vitello you’re studying with Tom Spanbauer and Gordon Lish and Chelsea Cain. Suzy is one of the rare writers who recognize and collect skills from a wide range of master storytellers. She’s become a one-woman MFA program.”  – Chuck Palahniuk

Suzy Vitello has this uncanny ability to distill a story down to its purest elements. A writer receiving feedback from Suzy will know precisely what to do with their story in order to make it work the minute she hands it back to them.”  – LitReactor student, Andrea T.
