Working with writers on memoirs, essays, and other book-length projects is a joy and an inspiration. I provide close readings, honest and motivating written feedback, and synchronous meetings when requested. I honor each writing project for what it wants to be, and for what the writer’s goals are.

I have taught writing and literature at Emerson College, Harvard University, GrubStreet, and Northeastern University. I also facilitate workshops for Writers Without Margins—a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to literary arts for everyone, including those marginalized, stigmatized, or isolated by the challenges of addiction recovery, disability, trauma, sickness, injury, poverty, and mental illness.

If you’d like to work together, please contact me for more information about availability and sliding scale rates.

Testimonials: Coming soon

“Caitlin possesses the necessary attributes to not only assist the writer through a detailed review, but also inspire the writer to produce higher quality content. Her attention to detail is very impressive. She asks all the right questions in the exact manner that will assist the writer in having their work constantly improving and progressing to the best final product that can be achieved. Her ability to organize all of the moving parts while maintaining the big picture view that the work deserves makes the editing process interesting, exciting, and fulfilling. Her criticism comes in defense of the manuscript’s best version, and for that reason, I would trust Caitlin with any and all of my work.” -Brendan Howard, Writer, Boston, MA
