What I Do (and What I Don’t Do)

What I do

I edit fiction and non-fiction for readers of all ages. This may include:

  • Manuscript assessment—providing unbiased feedback from someone other than your mother/husband/kids/best friend.
  • Developmental (aka macro or substantive or content) editing—looking at the organization, logic, clarity, plot, setting, characterization of your work. The big picture.
  • Stylistic or line editing—making your writing sing. Fine-tuning. Word by word.


What I don’t do

  • Copyediting
  • Proofreading
  • Ghostwriting
  • Chatting about your manuscript at 2 a.m.
