I have been working with Vicki for over two years. When we first began sharing work, my stories were rushed, disorganized, and full of summary. Vicki has helped me clearly define my scenes, focus my themes, and play with structure and form. While many of my first pieces were too rough to ever see the light of day, I now have five nonfiction pieces that have been either published or accepted for publication. Vicki has helped me feel comfortable crafting an arc in a nonfiction piece and has helped me inject my true voice into my stories. Her tough love has pushed me to better myself as a nonfiction writer. I'm incredibly thankful for her patience and persistence.

I believe the story is stronger thanks to Vicki Entreken's careful consideration of plot and characters and useful editorial feedback.

Vicki Entreken has been an outstanding coach and editor. She helped me focus on the purpose of my book and on better development of scenes and characters. Vicki also helped make the dialogue more realistic. I will always be grateful for her work on my behalf.
