Coaching + Editing.


Need help with a cover letter? Memoir? Application essay? Artist's statement? Op-ed? Wedding speech? Feature article? Phil's here to help, for a reasonable rate.

Phil has nearly a decade of combined experience as a former alt-weekly editor, an author of hundreds of articles on various subjects, a freelancer who has navigated the choppy waters of the magazine/newspaper/web publishing world, a nonfiction MFA program graduate, a college writing instructor, and someone who has helped countless friends with cover letters and speeches and application essays and other writing projects they care about. He knows the nonfiction writing world inside and out, and he loves sharing this knowledge with others

Phil is available for both one-on-one coaching, and seminars -- on subjects ranging from story-pitching to persuasive writing to travel writing to profile writing, and more -- for groups and classes. Please send queries to philip [dot] edward [dot] eil [at] gmail [dot] com.
