Editing Services

As an editor, I strive to enhance the best parts about your project. I boast thorough feedback, when applicable, and a quick turnaround rate. I utilise Word, InDesign, and Photoshop (depending, of course, on what we’re working on!) in order to provide the most professional work possible.

For substantive edits, I focus on structure, overarching themes, characterisation, and plot. For proofreading and line edits, I aim to showcase the writer’s unique style and structure while adhering to grammatical norms (AKA rules!) and formats.

Services are available for the following genres:

  • Young Adult, and New Adult literature
  • Literary fiction
  • LGBTQA fiction
  • Fantasy
    • includes paranormal, urban, high, and contemporary
  • Sci-fi
    • includes steampunk, dieselpunk, cyberpunk, and dystopia
  • Speculative fiction
  • Cross-genre fiction
  • Non-fiction (memoirs, creative non-fiction, cookbooks)
  • Academic writing (essays, dissertations, research papers)
  • Poetry and poetry collections of various forms

This is not an exhaustive or exclusive list! Contact me if you have a project outside the outlined genres, and we’ll see if I am a good fit for you and your work. I reserve the right to refuse projects due to sexism, racism, transphobia, and other harmful bigotry. I am also unable to work on horror or thriller projects at this time.

Contact me for a sample 3 – 5 page edit, free of charge, so you get a feel for my style!
