Republishing Policy

If you stumble upon something on Six Impossible Things that resonates with you (a poem, an essay, a piece of fiction, etc.) & you would like to republish it elsewhere – thank you so much! I am truly honoured that you enjoy my work.

I do ask, however, that you please email me first to receive permission before you use my work on your own website, in your book, or elsewhere. I will almost always be delighted to say yes, but I do appreciate being asked beforehand.

The same holds true if you would like to get a tattoo of a line from one of my poems or essays. That is such a beautiful honour, & I cannot express how delighted I am – but once again, please email me before you do so & let me know.

Advice Policy

If you would like writing advice, please first take a look at my Frequently Asked Questions. There resides in my FAQ the answer to a question I receive often: “do you have any writing advice?”.

If you would like writing advice beyond that (or: advice on life, on love, on language, on how to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich…), I am happy to accommodate. Feel free to get in touch. I cannot promise to answer all questions, simply because I do not know everything there is to know about writing – how boring that would be! – but I can do my best.

Critique Policy

Alas, these days it is difficult for me to make time to write my own work & also critique everything that comes into my inbox.

& so: if we know each other personally &/or if we have exchanged critiques before, do feel free to send me an email. If not: please give the Muse my best regards & look elsewhere. I am immensely honoured that you thought of me, but unfortunately, I must sleep.

If you are very interested in me looking over your work, please drop me an email to inquire about professional critique rates. I would love to discuss working with you.

 

(Thank you very much for looking over my policies. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.)
