Testimonials:

"Sarah is a fantastic editor. She helped me work through some poems that needed a lot of help. She got right to the heart of things, could see where I was trying to go and gave me the tools to get there. And it doesn't hurt that she's really fun to work with!

-Katie Rice

"Sarah Jefferis is my writing doula! She is a joyful spirit who truly celebrates the writing process. Sarah inspires us with recitations from the talented voices of poets among us, all the while coaxing and guiding our own creative force along. In the end, a new piece of writing inevitably emerges from within our sacred writing space. I would highly recommend Sarah's workshops."

-Gabrielle Evans

 

"I know Sarah to be a most astute writer, editor, and educator, but more than that, she is exceptionally insightful and sensitive to what a work-in-progress is and what it can be.  Her insights have always been incredibly helpful in my writing." 

-José Antonio Rodríguez, author of the forthcoming House Built on Ashes: A Memoir

 

"Sarah Jefferis is a skilled writing coach and she helped guide me through the revision process of my manuscript. I was impressed by her insight and her ability to view the ‘big picture’ of my story and help me move towards a much stronger draft. I found Sarah personable and a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her as a writing coach."

-Abigail Bokaer
