Whether you’re a writer who’s looking to get their work polished before sending it off to a magazine editor, an independent spirit who wants one last set of eyes on something before you publish it on your blog, or a reader who wants to see how a story goes from idea to finished product, I’m your man.
My name is E. Christopher Clark. In the words of the fictional novelist Q, a character from the film Wonder Boys, “I… am A Writer.”
But I am also a teacher. I’ve been teaching at the college level since 2007, having created courses for my university in Advanced Short Fiction, Genre Fiction, and more.
When I teach, both at the school where I still work and in my own private practice, my aim is to help folx from all walks of life to tell their own stories. I want to help them tell the stories that only they can tell.
I’ll mentor you through the writing and revision of a short story, a 10-minute script, or a miniature chap-book of poems. You pitch me the idea, I offer you feedback and a reading list to supplement your writing, and we meet monthly via video conference (or in person, if you’re in the Boston area) to discuss your process.
I’ll write a story just for you. You give me the idea—no matter how out there—and I’ll spin a yarn for you that’s fit for a queen. It’ll be 1,000 to 4,000 words and I’ll get it to you in a month or less.
So that you can see how I got from your idea to the finished product, I’ll also provide a process journal to help illuminate my mysterious process.
And if you want to publish the story under your name or a pseudonym, that’s totally fine. I am quite comfortable being your friendly neighborhood Ghost-Writer.
Here’s all three services, side-by-side, because I love you.
