I offer writing coaching, editing services, and workshops. Query for details.


David F. Shultz (MA, JD, BEd, OCT) writes and edits speculative fiction from Toronto, ON, where he also runs the Toronto Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers group (with 400+ writers) and is lead editor for the tdotSpec Inc. His over fifty published works have appeared in publications such as Abyss & Apex and Dreams and Nightmares.


“As a novice writer this was a very helpful and constructive experience. David was professional and incredibly knowledgeable, providing insight into methods and techniques standard to the craft. As I lacked any formal training, it was invigorating to receive professional help.”

“My discussions with David were immediately productive and enjoyable. David’s easy professionalism and naturally focused demeanor allowed for us to seamlessly bypass my anxiety, work together on specific tasks, set goals for me to work on and get clarity on any uncertainties with a minimum of awkward confusion or wasted time. I enjoyed the process, understood exactly what to do next and was left motivated and inspired.”

“I really enjoyed working with David. He was very constructive and everything felt like a suggestion, like editing with a friend.”

“David was extremely pleasant, helpful, and professional. I really got the sense that he cared about my writing and wanted to help me achieve my goal of being published.”
