Update May 2017: I am currently not accepting any new manuscript assessments from the public.

Manuscript assessment, line editing, copy editing

Maybe you’ve completed the first draft of your novel and you’re not sure what to do next.

Or maybe you’ve already put your project through several drafts and you just want an efficient and reliable copy editor or proofreader. I can help! 

I will provide a detailed substantive critique of your manuscript with suggestions for the next steps of your draft. I will also undertake line editing or copy editing as requested for manuscripts that are suitably advanced.

Development and coaching

Sometimes writers need more than just a manuscript critique. Maybe you are trying to organize materials for a memoir or family history or jump-start a stalled novel-in-progress. I can help coach you through the process with ongoing planning, deadlines, reading, and positive, concrete feedback.


I also provide editing and coaching for academic theses, dissertations, scholarly articles, or book manuscripts in preparation for submission.


I charge between $35-$55/hour depending on the nature of the editing or coaching. A flat fee and per word rate is also available for select projects.
