Writer in Residence
Join professional writer & editor, C. Flanagan Flynn,
at any one of her individualized programs.
Professional editor C. Flanagan Flynn has been named our first Writer-In-Residence, and is available to help all levels of writers with their writing and editing needs during her weekly office hours on Thursdays.
Stuck on a personal essay, memoir, novel, or blog content? Enlist C's help like countless other writers have. C's expertise in working with fiction and nonfiction writers is evidenced through the bylines they’ve earned working with her. As the former Managing Editor of Brain Child and Brain Teen magazines, C’s editorial roles extend to Founding Editor and Editor-in-Chief of Centered: The magazine of personal stories where six of the personal essays and memoir excerpts are in contention for Pushcart Prizes. With C’s editorial input, writers have published standalone essays, memoir excerpts, or novel excerpts in Creative Nonfiction Magazine, The New York Times (Modern Love Column), The MacGuffin, and Brain Teen. Manuscripts she’s edited have been published by Penguin Random House, New World Library, and Lone Pine Publishing. She’s guided bloggers to syndication, including a writer’s recent partnership with The Good Men Project.
As a writer, C has been twice nominated for Pushcart Prizes and, in 2018, an excerpt of her memoir, A Reunion of Broken Parts, was a finalist for The Frank McCourt Memoir Prize. She’s been published in The New York Times, Memoir Magazine, Brain Child, and Brain Teen.
She also teaches the highly successful Write Your Memoir or Novel and Six Months to Your Manuscript workshops. A seasoned copywriter, C can also help with marketing, advertising, and brand messaging. C’s editorial eye, her ability to help writers finish manuscripts, and her experience with excerpting chapters have proven life-changing for writers.
