Editor for Hire

Are you a freelance writer, blogger or novelist who is in need of an editor? I can help you get a good start to your career as a writer at an affordable price.

Not only has my experience as a novelist and blogger enabled me to hone my skills as a writer, it has made me realize that people want to read a gripping story that is well written.

I also do have experience as a copy editor: I worked as a volunteer copy editor for Women’s Essence Magazine. I have samples of articles I have edited I can forward to you if interested.

Here is what I have to offer you:

  • Copy Editing (light, medium, heavy)
  • Proofreading

Projects I’m seeking to edit:

  • Fiction (long and short)
  • Blog Articles
  • Magazine Articles
  • Non-Fiction ( YA, History and Memoir are my areas of expertise)

I will provide you with constructive feedback that is also thorough. Just to put your mind at ease, when I mean ‘constructive’, I don’t mean ‘harsh’. Not in the least. If I see a scene in your novel, or section in your non-fiction book, that needs more work, I will let you know.

I will also explain how you can improve this scene to make it stronger, more compelling, gripping, etc. ButI will be as gentle and professional about it as I can because, after all, it’s your story, your creative project. That said, when I read a scene that sparkles — one that grips me and makes me want to keep reading — I will also let you know and I will explain in detail why that works and how you can maintain that technique throughout the rest of your story.
