Here I blog about writing, editing, reading, books, submissions, freelancing, getting published (and rejected), journalism, revisions, life after the MFA, teaching writing, and living the writer's life. Welcome. BUT -- if you are a writer: Write first, read blogs second.

Editorial Services

Editing / Critique / Feedback / Manuscript Evaluation / Other Writing, Editing Services

If you need feedback/critique/editing for a manuscript in development, or for shorter pieces; if you are bogged down in the middle of a writing project, don't have the time or expertise to write or edit a particular project, or have any other editorial needs that require a personal, creative, careful approach, perhaps we can work together.

I am an experienced, thoughtful editor, and have worked with writers of fiction or nonfiction, on projects including: short essays and memoir pieces; short stories; book-length manuscripts, novel or memoir; creative theses, and more. Services range from proofreading and line/copy edits to full critiques, developmental/prose editing, collaborative writing and editing, and ghostwriting.

My rates are reasonable and I have many satisfied clients. I'm flexible, reliable, and professional. As a working writer myself, I hate to see other writers waste time or money (all of us never have enough of either!), so if I'm not a good match to the project, I'll say so, and if possible, refer you on to someone else who may be a better fit.

We find out by talking about your needs. There's never a fee for an initial phone consultation. Rates for services can be by the page, hour, word count, or project, depending on several factors, and I provide an estimate based on reading a few pages of your work. For big projects, I also offer a Sample Edit for a small fee, so that you can get a good idea of what kind of feedback/edit I can provide and what it might be like to work together.

I am also available for MFA (or residency/artist colony/grant) application consultation and portfolio critique, monthly writing coaching, and other literary and editorial needs.
