Editing Services

HIRE ME as an editor for your short story or book project. I’ll provide close reading, copy editing, and story-level suggestions (developmental editing). Specialties include flash fiction, literary fiction, young adult fiction, and fantastic fiction (magical realism, speculative, and cross-genre), but I am open to other genres.

I follow the guidelines of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

Speed Dating – Quickie Consult

Want a professional editor’s honest, constructive feedback on your flash fiction? I offer an introductory editorial consult of 5 pages for $25. This includes close critical reading, copy editing (as needed), line-by-line editorial suggestions (as needed), and a holistic commentary on your work. You may submit up to 5 standard double-spaced manuscript pages, or approximately 1200 words. This could be one very short story, two flash pieces, or three or more microfiction pieces.

Please send work in Word (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text (.rtf) format. Response time is no more than 5 days–usually, considerably less. Contact me for a quick consultation or to discuss longer projects.
