Award-winning author Carole Boston Weatherford

With 50-plus books, scores of literary honors and decades of editorial, public relations and teaching experience, I mentor aspiring and emerging authors. I have shared my  expertise through conferences, workshops, retreats and initiatives such as We Need Diverse Books. I even tested the waters as a literary agent. My mentees have landed contracts and won awards.

I am now offering services as a book doctor and creative coach. I specialize in picture books, biographies, nonfiction and poetry. I offer book doctoring to re-envision manuscripts and coaching to advance literary goals. I am especially interested in diverse books and Own Voices projects.

I sometimes host private workshops in North Carolina and Maryland. Watch this space for announcements.


Book Doctoring: $750-$5000 Sliding scale is based on word count, complexity and age/category. Fee includes written feedback and a 15-minute, one-on-one consultation via phone or Skype.

One-on-One Coaching: $250 per hour. Via phone or Skype

Other services: $150-200/hour
