Hi, I am Elizabeth Cohen...and I help people
write and edit their books. I have worked with novelists, poets, journalists, nonfiction writers and short story authors, but my speciality is in the area of memoir. You might say I am a memoir doctor. I enjoy taking a memoir that seems to be evading its author in one way or another, diagnosing its challenges, and then working INTENSIVELY with the writer to find real solutions to make it better.
My clients are bestselling authors (New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Amazon bestsellers, and top indie book status). You'll find below a sampling of new client works. I'd love to add your name to the list!
I am a working essayist/journalist and the author of 8 books: an award-winning memoir, four books of poetry, a co-authored autobiography and a book of short stories. I have been published by Random House, Bantam, Other Press, and the wonderful Saint Julian Press, among other places.
