Ericka is a brilliant writing analyst. I have worked with her on two very different projects, a novel manuscript and a novel start, and she was unfailingly incisive in helping me identify theme and refine structure. Her feedback on what worked and what needed work was always spot on. After talking with her I had a deeper focus and clearer sense of what was essential in my work. She also has a kindness and supportiveness that gives me the confidence to continue my writing journey with renewed energy.  She’s terrific!
– Livia L.


It all begins with a free Connection Call.

“What every writer hopes for when seeking feedback is a reader who can clearly hear the particular voice of the work, recognize its unfulfilled possibilities, pinpoint where it flags or goes awry – and, not least, notice its best moments. It is rare to find someone with this skill and vision. Ericka Lutz has it, but she has more – she has the patience, the thoroughness and the language to turn these insights into something practical you can use. This is the faculty the best book editors I have known bring to their work, and it is our good fortune that Ericka is not locked away in some publishing skyscraper but here, available to us all.”
