Writing Coaching and Developmental Editing, $65/hr

Coaching and developmental editing services are tailored to your individual needs as a writer, but can include any or all of the following: suggesting and/or guiding you through writing exercises; offering insight on larger, more substantial textual changes such as organizational/structural edits, plot elements, and character development; providing extensive constructive feedback and guidance on specific elements of the text or the work as a whole; and answering questions about the publication process within the scope of my knowledge. These services are intended to aid you in crafting or revising a work in progress or to coach you through the writing process from inception to submission and are offered for the following types of writing:

  • Fiction (novels, short stories), particularly speculative fiction, mystery, horror, fantasy, and sci-fi
  • Nonfiction (memoirs, creative nonfiction)

Copyediting and Language Editing, $50/hr

Minor copyediting and English language editing services are provided for finished products (post-draft and revision phase). The goal of these services is to prep your work for publication or distribution, correcting errors such as spelling, grammar, and mechanics with minimal intervention; I aim to provide clarity while respecting and preserving your voice as the author. These services are offered for the following types of writing:

  • Fiction (novels, short stories), particularly speculative fiction, mystery, horror, fantasy, and sci-fi
  • Nonfiction (memoirs, creative nonfiction)

Proofreading, $0.25/word

Proofreading services are offered for shorter pieces such as short-form poetry, online content, and newsletters, but only on a regular basis (I do not accept one-off proofing requests). The goal of this service is to correct typos, minor grammatical and usage errors, and punctation. If more thorough editing is required, then projects will be billed at the editing rate.

  • Poetry
  • Short fiction
  • Short-form creative nonfiction
  • Online content (blog posts, websites)
  • Newsletters
