I offer consultations on single poems, poetry packets, and chapbook-length manuscripts. Approximate rates follow, though I offer discounts to student writers as well as writers in need of financial assistance:
Single poem, $8 (one page) and $10 (two page)
5-6 page packet, $45
10-12 page packet, $70
Chapbook-length manuscript (18-32 pages), $125. This includes feedback on individual poems as well as suggestions on ordering, titling, and potentially cutting pieces to strengthen the manuscript as a whole.

"Stacey's edited all my poetry books & chosen gorgeous cover art for me, as well as helping me title poems & books! HEADLESS MAMA owes her so much. I trust Stacey with all my poem babies & you should too." --Jennifer Givhan, author of Landscape with Headless Mama (Winner of the 2015 Pleiades Editors Prize) and Protection Spell (2017 Miller Williams Series)
"Stacey's insights have helped me be more courageous in revising my poems. I've been working in solitude for three years now, since I finished a graduate program. Truth be told, I've learned more about revision and critique in this [her Poetry Barn] workshop than I did as a graduate student." --Christine Swint, author of Swimming This
"I was blown away by Stacey's comments on my poem. Her suggestions were so helpful, and inspiring! ... She wrote: “Thank you for this poem: I have no doubt it’s going somewhere beyond what you’ve even imagined so far!” How did she know that?! Her comments inspired me to get right back to work on it. " --JL
