Editorial Services

What do I edit?

Books, short stories, essays, articles, marketing ads, newsletters, PowerPoint decks, storyboards, corporate communications, resumes, blog posts, and websites (for navigation, layout, content, and design to assist with creating a personal brand and style guide.)

It is important to note that I cannot be your content editor and your proofreader. I should not be hired to do each step of the process. It is always helpful to have another set of eyes on the content along the way for the writer and the editor. If you need recommendations for a secondary editor, I'm happy to reach out to my network to find someone to partner with us through the editorial process. My goal is to make sure you, the writer, feel confident about the words you are gifting to the world.

Content Editing

Content editing (also known as developmental or substantive editing) is the first step in the editorial process, and it's one of my favorites. This is when I get to assist with structure, theme, and continuity of the piece by asking intentional questions for clarity to further develop the story. 

Depending on the length of the piece and budget constraints, I recommend a minimum of two rounds.
Rates are determined per project.

Hire me for content editing.

Proofreading

Proofreading is the last step in the editorial process, and another favorite. This is the final read of the piece and where I search for the needles in the haystack; they may be missed typos, passive language, unnecessary words, or highlighting visual and editorial mistakes.

Depending on the length of the piece and budget constraints, I recommend a minimum of two rounds.
Rates are determined per project.

Hire me for proofreading.

Digital Editing

As a former web designer, I love the art of creatively laying out content with a consistent style to draw visitors in, making them stay a while and return. Whether you currently have a website or just an idea for one, I will consult on layout, navigation, and content. 

The current state of your website--whether it needs to be refreshed or is brand new--will determine the length of the project. I will provide an estimate after our first consultation.

What I love to edit

Like all editors, I have a sweet spot. There are projects I love to edit because I am equally passionate about the genre of writing and/or the topic. If you have something that falls into one of these categories, chances are you're going to see me reach epic-level proportions of word-nerdom.

Hire me to be your editor.
