CONSULTING

 

BOOK WRITING/PITCHING/PUBLISHING CONSULTATIONS

My one-on-one career consultations are tailored specifically to a client’s writing goals. These consultations are designed to not only help you finally get your book organized, outlined and written, but also to help you GET IT PUBLISHED! Combining both my experience as a multi-published author and editor, alongside interviews with other successful writers, agents and publishers, I will help you:

*Develop a plan and a schedule for writing your fiction or nonfiction book.

 

*Get a clearer picture of industry trends and the pitfalls and opportunities that await you in the publishing world.

 

*Strategize to overcome the inevitable (and dreaded) writer’s block!

 

*Learn how to find the right agent or publisher for your project.

 

*Put together dynamic query letters and pitch packages following a proven system that will get noticed by agents and publishers.

 

*Understand the potential benefits and the process of self-publishing.

 

*Break into the world of professional ghostwriting.

 

*Market yourself as a professional writer, building a career in this tough but rewarding industry!

I work with writers of all interests and experience levels, all over the country. I have the means to do a consultation both in person and over the phone. If you’re interested in setting up a consultation, please  email me at jimmartyka@gmail.com.

FREELANCE WRITING CONSULTATIONS

 

Before I started working in the publishing industry, I worked for many years as a freelance writer and still writer for a number of national magazines, journals and other publications. I offer consultations on building a career as a freelance writer, with advice on:

 

*How to break in and writing for popular publications.

 

*How to go about story hunting.

 

*Marketing yourself as a professional writer, including blogs and personal web pages.

 

*Customizing story pitches and query letters.

 

*Organizing and “doing the work.”

 

*Payment negotiations and the business of freelance writing.

 

*Niche freelancing, such as travel writing, reviews, features, press releases and more.

 

*Having your creative writing or personal essays published.

 

Once again, I work with writers of all interests and experience levels, all over the country. I have the means to do a consultation both in person and over the phone. If you’re interested in setting up a consultation, please  email me at jimmartyka@gmail.com.
