Developmental Editing:

Book-Length Developmental Edit: novel, story collection, memoir, essay collection

Perhaps you’re looking to take an early draft of your book-length project to the next level. I can help you tackle the big-picture issues keeping your draft from reaching its fullest potential.

After completing a sample edit of your manuscript for a flat fee, I'll send you a detailed proposal outlining how I can help you develop the manuscript as a whole. The developmental edit will include

  • In-line comments and questions highlighting areas of improvement including but not limited to: plot & character development, stakes, theme(s), pacing, etc.
  • 3+ page editorial letter summarizing my in-line comments and celebrating the strengths of the manuscript, while providing a practical roadmap for revision.
  • 1-hour Zoom or phone call: a time and space for us to discuss the manuscript IRL.
  • All pricing varies depending on the length of the project.

Manuscript Consultation:

personal essay, short story < 7,000 words: ($150)

  • Feedback on your short story or personal essay in the form of a 1 page editorial letter addressing big-picture elements such as structure, character development, themes, stakes, etc.
  • Tailored writing exercises and/or recommended reading for inspiration/guidance.
  • novels and novellas > 30k words = per page rate determined by the scope of the project.
