My name is Jacob Slichter. I am a professional writer and musician, and I teach creative writing in the MFA program at Sarah Lawrence .
I have extensive experience helping writers, including . . .
writers who are blocked.
writers who feel vexed by some aspect of their work.
writers who want to access their creative potential.
I also read essays, stories, manuscripts, and screenplays and provide feedback that respects the aims of the work.
I have worked with memoirists, novelists, screenwriters, songwriters, and playwrights, and I can fill a variety of roles — mentor, coach, consultant, listener — according to your goals. My clients span a wide range of experience, from directors of Oscar-nominated films to those making their first forays into creative writing, and I enjoy working with all of them.
