In 2013, Susanna founded the MADISON WRITERS' STUDIO with the award-winning author Michelle Wildgen, with the goal of bringing challenging, high-level writing instruction to the Madison, Wisconsin area.

Today, the MWS offers a wide array of nonfiction workshops for writers of fiction and creative nonfiction, oral storytellers, novelists, and memoirist. We believe every writer deserves respect, close reading, and thoughtful feedback -- and we aim to provide it. Learn more about the MWS.

One-on-One Coaching and Editing

Susanna works one-on-one with writers of short stories, essays, novels, and memoirs. She'll coach a writer from the idea stages to the finished book, or she'll partner with a writer to edit a draft. She works remotely with writers who are not local, and excels at honest, nuts-and-bolts feedback, clear revision strategies, and encouragement. Contact Susanna to get started.
