I’ve been working with Chelsey Clammer for nearly ten years now, in classes, one-on-one workshops, and manuscript editing. She is highly skilled and very generous, two qualities that are rare in writing instructors. Moreover, her guidance has allowed my writing to grow and change in ways I couldn’t anticipate.
Writing is often lonely work, work that can lose momentum too easily. Chelsey’s mentorship and editing skills help me to keep my writing practice consistent and productive, leading to tremendous personal satisfaction as well as rewarding publications. -Lori White
Every writer should be lucky enough to have an editor like Chelsey Clammer in their corner. She has a knack for getting to the heart of the story you’re trying to tell and then queries its urgency, its layered nuances. In her developmental critiques, I always feel she respects the fine boundary between my vision and her literary opinion. I’ll read one of her feedback suggestions and often I’ll think, Now why didn’t I think of that? I often rely on Chelsey’s thorough and detailed critiques before subbing or when a piece gets rejected too many times. For the satisfaction of seeing many of my personal essays in print, I have Chelsey to thank. -Linda Petrucelli
