ABOUT CAROLYN ZAIKOWSKI CONSULTS ON: The novel, short fiction, poetry manuscripts, hybrid and experimental texts, short and book-length nonfiction, project planning. AREAS OF INTEREST: As a reader and writer, I am steeped in many forms, and I love helping people attain depth and three-dimensionality in their work. For short fiction and novels, I am especially interested in lyrical prose, voice, character building, and the psychological elements of narrative. I’m also well-versed in, and very enthusiastic about, hybrid/cross-genre methods and both classic and experimental forms of poetry. Finally, I love personal and sociopolitical nonfiction of all lengths, with a background and special interest in gender, disability, social justice, trauma and healing, meditation and spirituality, travel, animals, and death studies/thanatology. BIO: ​ CAROLYN ZAIKOWSKI is the author of the hybrid novel In Dream, I Dance by Myself, and I Collapse (Civil Coping Mechanisms Press). Her fiction, poetry, and essays have appeared widely in The Washington Post, Denver Quarterly, The Rumpus, Alaska Quarterly, West Branch, DIAGRAM, and elsewhere. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics and is currently an English professor, writing consultant, and volunteer death doula.
