Consulting / Editing / Coaching with Carolyn Zaikowski at PVWW (2 hours)
This is a two-hour consulting / editing / coaching package with Carolyn Zaikowski, at PVWW. This package is for two hours of Carolyn's time. After purchase, Carolyn will be in touch with you directly to learn more about how you'd like to use your time, as well as to schedule the session (either editing, coaching, or a combination of both). Please allow up to a week for the consultant to reach out directly after purchase.
How a two-hour consulting / editing / coaching package can be used:
- First Hour: Review of approximately 10 - 15 double-spaced pages of prose in standard formatting, including margin and line comments in Google Docs, and brief written/bulleted overall feedback. (Please note: Number of pages reviewed depends on the amount and type of editing/commenting that's needed, the density of the prose, and each editor's pace and speed. We cannot guarantee that the maximum number of pages will be reviewed.) For poetry: Review of / feedback on five one-page poems (or multi-page poems, not exceeding five total pages).
- Second Hour: Coaching session / check-in / conversation, either on phone or Zoom, after feedback has been received. The order of these sessions can also be reversed as well, if it makes sense to have an initial coaching session first, then review work afterward.
- Another option: Both hours used for reading / feedback on written work (for prose: approximately 15 - 25 double spaced pages, in standard formatting; for poetry: maximum of 10 pages of poetry, or 10 individual one-page poems); OR both hours used for conversation / coaching / one-on-one instruction (with no review of work).
- Coaching packages are priced at each editor's individual hourly rates.
- Your PVWW consultant / editor / coach will reach out to you to learn more about what you're looking for and to schedule your session!
- Make sure that the contact info you share upon purchase of the session is clear, as that's the email address they will contact.
- You can expect to hear from your consultant within seven days.
- PVWW editors have different styles and ways of working, and all editing and coaching work is tailored to your needs. Make sure you and your editor/coach are on the same page before work together begins!
- If you want to continue working with your editor / coach after your initial session, you can book more time with them, either another two-hour package, or you can talk to them about a longer session.
Our basic policies regarding consulting, editing, and coaching at PVWW:
- All paid-for editing and/or coaching hours must be used within the calendar year they were purchased.
- We are not able to offer refunds for any editing and/or coaching work that has already been completed and/or started by the consultant. However, if an editor has not yet begun the work and a refund is requested, that can usually be accommodated. In general, consulting/editing/coaching refunds and/or cancellations are handled on a case-by-case basis.
- Please respect your consultant's time and make sure that all work turned in is double-spaced and in standard formatting (Times New Roman, 12 point font, one inch margins). Work that is not in standard formatting will be put into standard formatting before reading / commenting begins.
