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 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.
