chulito“Marcela Landres has been instrumental in me getting from ‘aspiring’ to ‘published’ writer.”—Charles Rice-Gonzalez, award-winning author of Chulito

During the time I worked as an editor at Simon & Schuster—and now as a freelance editor—I witnessed firsthand how uninformed writers can be about the business side of publishing. While mastering craft is essential, it is not enough to guarantee publication. Knowledge is power only when shared so I offer my experience and expertise—via consultations, workshops, and e-zine—with the intention of empowering others to create the writing careers they desire and deserve. Authors I’ve worked with have gone on to be published by presses such as Pocket, Scholastic, and Sourcebooks.
