Librettist of Opera and Choral Works

Libretti: I am available to write lyrics for short works for voice and/or chorus, as well as longer pieces such as cantatas and operas.

 

I am especially interested in truly collaborative projects, involving multiple drafts and close work with the composer.

 

Initial Queries: Please contact me by email with a short description of your project and an approximate timetable for completion.

The Write Angle: Editing and Publishing Services

Editing Services: I offer several levels of non-fiction editing, including 

  • concept edit (manuscript evaluation and critique) 
  • limited collaborative edit
  • line-editing (editing and/or rewriting at the sentence level)

Initial Queries: Please contact me by email with a short description of your manuscript and an explanation of what you want me to do. 

If I am available and think it sounds like a good match, I'll ask you to send me the full or partial manuscript. I prefer to see the project before settling on terms.
