With 6+ years of professional writing and editing experience (from children's books to manuscript development to press releases), I offer editorial & coaching services for:
manuscripts and essays
written publicity and marketing materials
& other content
Examples of services:
Manuscript Coaching - The works. You're not sure whether you have a collection of essays, or the beginnings of a narrative memoir, and if you did have a memoir, how the heck would you structure it? I'll read your work and comment, covering what to do with your material to best showcase it, from focus to form. I'm keen to offer reading suggestions as well.
Essay Magic - You have a situation, but need help with the story. Something is missing. Maybe your short thing needs to be long, or your big thing wants to be short. Discover what's weak, what's already powerful, and transform your experiences into compelling, universally meaningful prose. Basic feedback, big picture cuts or additions relating to issues of focus, as well as local work with language and style, and help with finding markets to submit to.
Copyediting - You want to spend more time writing and less time editing. You want your work to be the best version of you: clearer, fresher, tighter, and possibly breathtaking. I can do this for you!
