Editorial Services

Here are the editorial services I offer. Be amazed! There are so many!

You may choose one of my standard plans (“Basic” “Intermediate” “Poetry”), á la carte (see below), or work with me to develop a plan tailored specifically for you.

Price varies depending on the project, but don’t be shy about querying. 


á la Carte

Assessment

A read-through of your manuscript
A brief written critique, highlighting what works and what doesn’t work

Developmental Editing

An intensive read-through of your manuscript with notes and written critiques. Our focus will be pacing, plot, point of view, structural issues, narrative and character arcs, any big picture questions.

Copyediting

A read-through of your manuscript with notes on and corrections of grammar, punctuation, language repetition, spelling

Proofreading

 

(Poetry Pack)

Poets need editors too. A close reading and assessment of your poem with notes, emphasis on language.

Rush

This is an optional add-on to any of the above services. Do you need your edits more quickly than usual? Then the “Rush” add-on is for you!

However, not everything should be rushed, and how much earlier the rush add-on can get you your edited manuscript is dependent on a number of factors. I’m always happy to discuss alternate deadlines with clients.
