“I received pings of interest from agents/publishers on my manuscript, but wasn’t getting representation. I needed help from a professional editor. Kerrie showed me where my writing hindered the story and detracted from a reader’s experience. Her critique—which was specific, while encouraging—helped strengthen my manuscript, elevating it to a polished project ready to be pitched. Wow! I have learned so much working with Kerrie and am excited to query anew. My only regret is not seeking her services earlier. I highly recommend Kerrie Flanagan!”

"I reached out to Kerrie for a consultation for tips on breaking into the freelance world, particularly for magazines. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and easy to talk to. I gained so much from my one hour consultation, that I trusted her to critique/edit a very personal essay that I had just finished writing. Her suggestions were so helpful, with just simple structure changes that made the story stronger, while keeping the integrity of my writing and voice. I now feel more confident venturing out into the freelance world knowing I have Kerrie in my arsenal."
"Your children’s writing class was so incredibly helpful to me and our one on one consulting time was the icing on the cake. You are a gifted teacher and author. I would highly recommend your class and consulting to anyone writing a book or magazine article ."

"It was in my brain, I didn’t know how to put it in print. Kerrie knew exactly how to get me started and, two books later, I’m working on number 3. My time with Kerrie has opened a new world for me. Proud to have her as a consultant."
