Editing Packages & Pricing

If you’re looking for a professionally trained editor who’s also a writer with years of experience working with a variety of authors—from bestsellers to those just starting out—you’ve come to the right place. In addition to having a certificate in editing from the University of Chicago, I have done freelance editing work for Macmillan Publishers, written for Quarto Publishing, and taught craft workshops for the Atlanta Writers Club and Wake up and Write. I’m also a regular contributor to Writer Unboxed, a Writer’s Digest Best Website for Writers.

My editing philosophy is simple: be accurate, be efficient, be kind. I believe it’s essential for editors to provide honest, constructive feedback and critique while being respectful and nurturing. That’s the promise I make to all my clients, and one I’ll make to you, too. Click or tap here to read some of what clients are saying about my work.

*Price may vary depending on the complexity and level of editing required. To determine total cost for word-based a la carte pricing, multiply total manuscript word count by price-per-word. Ex: style/line edit of a 80k-word manuscript would be 80,000 x .016 = $1,280. Final price of all services will be determined after a sample review has been conducted and may vary based on the submitted manuscript. Flexible payment options are available.
