I am also available to write a longer column or ongoing work. Contact me today, I would love to write for you!

Editing and Feedback Services

My experience as an editor includes helping other writers to plan, organize, revise and complete manuscripts and have provided feedback towards publication on individual stories, poems and essays. I would love to help you start a project, or get feedback on an existing project based on needs and budget.

My services include:

For full or partial manuscripts-
Close editing of manuscript that provides line-by-line comments or comments on specific scenes/moments in the work ($40/hr to meet and discuss work in person or via video chat or a flat rate dependent on length of manuscript. Please contact me to inquire further).

Individual works (up to 5 poems, a short story or essay)

  • A $50 flat rate for works 3,000 words or less.
  • A $75 flat rate for individual works 4,000-7,000 words.

I’m happy to answer any questions about any of these services and work out a plan that works for you. Please fill out the Contact form on the homepage for more information.
