Looking for Editing Services?

I offer a variety of services for writers:

  1. Copy (line) editing: word choice, faulty logic, repetition, weak/awkward phrasing, tightening up sentence structure, sharpening language.
  2. Developmental (big picture) editing: moving/deleting whole chapters/characters, tightening theme, location, dialogue, adding literary devices such as foreshadowing and symbolism, rewriting for target audience/tone. 
  3. Writing coaching (monthly on Zoom): I'll keep you on a writing schedule with monthly Zooms. We review, discuss, sharpen and plan next steps. Readings and writing exercises are optional. 
  4. Manuscript evaluations: I read your work and return it with a 4-8 page report on the major story elements, what's working and what isn't. 
  5. Consultations: I offer one-hour Zoom consultations for writers who have questions about any stage of their work, the publication process, agents and query letters.
