Looking for help developing your prose? Or does it just need a polish? I offer a variety of editing services.

  • Developmental/structural editing
    Big picture: content and structure
  • Stylistic editing
    Smoothing out the edges: clear, powerful sentences
  • Copy editing
    Fine tuning: grammar, punctuation, spelling (copy editing and stylistic editing often go hand in hand)
  • Manuscript evaluation
    An assessment of a manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses, along with suggestions for improvement (less intensive than an edit)
  • Rewriting
    A complete reworking of a rough draft (more intensive than an edit)
  • Proofreading
    A final check before the manuscript is published
