Editing Services

From complete edits of novels to group coaching and one-on-one coaching, I offer a variety of editing and book coaching services to fit your needs and your budget. Some clients I work with need just a light touch – line editing for punctuation, spelling, etc. Others seek a more heavy hand, knowing what they want to accomplish with their writing but unsure of how to get there on their own. Still others benefit from a small group setting where we “workshop” works-in-progress, get your work in front of multiple readers and give and receive feedback on drafts. 

The editing and coaching packages I offer are meant to meet writers where they are – whether it’s at the very beginning of a writing journey, somewhere in the middle or pushing toward the finish line. Ask me about group coaching services, or schedule a free 30-minute consult to discuss your work and determine the best course of action. 

Every good writer is supported by a strong editor and strong and caring readers. There are many types of editing, and we talk about all possibilities in an initial free 30-minute consult. Contact me today, and let’s explore how we can work together to help you clarify and polish your message, story or brand!

Work with a professional editor and trained writing coach who offers meaningful and constructive criticism – feedback that is honest and open, yet respectful. Grow as a writer and meet your writing goals with a voice that will both encourage and challenge you along the way. 

A first draft is telling a story to yourself. Revision is telling a story to everyone else.
