Concise, Solutions-Focused Feedback Oriented Towards Your Goals.
What I Do
As a published writer who provides editing and coaching services, I understand the hard work that goes into writing projects and the need for clear, solutions-focused feedback. Editing is a collaborative process that requires active listening to understand a writer’s goals, diligent attention to detail, and meeting all deadlines on time every time. I value helping writers find or hone their authentic voices while assessing the big picture in order to strengthen their story arcs.

You will receive a 30-minute consultation to discuss author concerns and goals for this edit, in-text comments on your manuscript pointing out what’s working as well as what may require more clarity, and a 3 to 5 page editorial letter outlining the manuscript’s strengths and opportunities for revision.
