Marian Haddad, MFA is a manuscript consultant, as well. A number of poets and writers on whose manuscripts she has consulted have gone on to publish their collections and/or have won poetry prizes for their collections or for various pieces; some have won poetry contests judged by reputable and nationally recognized organizations.
Marian Haddad uses various approaches for manuscript consultations. Most of the poets and writers with whom she works are out-of-town and out-of-state. She offers two methods of consultation. One method is the personal, one-on-one consultation, via phone and/or internet, a personal workshop, per se. Another method is for the poet/writer to mail her a paper copy of their manuscript which she edits in three reads. The third read includes an ordering of the poems or essays, if they are poems and essays. In addition and often, suggestions are made to the poets/writers with whom she works as to journals or anthologies or contests which might welcome particular pieces. She has been successful, also, in placing manuscripts in the hands of small publishers and university publishers who have accepted the manuscripts in consideration. Three full-length collections of poems and essays, currently, are forthcoming in Fall and Spring of 2006.
Whether you are interested in having Marian Haddad consult on a full-length manuscript, on a series of poems or memoirs/essays or pieces of fiction or non-fiction, or whether you prefer her to consult on a small number of poems or a series of poems, she will tailor a specific plan for your purposes, to meet your needs.
