Editing means different things to different people.
When I use the word edit, I think shaping. As opposed to story coaching, where I make suggestions and ask questions, when it comes to editing I am thinking more of the reader, and less of you, the writer.
I look for anything that could toss readers out of the story, or flow of your thoughts, and look for places they could benefit from more information or become confused.
For long works (50+ pages) I offer a 3-page sample consult for free, both to give you an idea of my style, and to allow me to gauge the level of feedback expected. Estimated project cost will be based on this initial consult.
I bring a lifetime of reading and story-loving supplemented with a bachelor’s in journalism and 15 years of writing experience.
We can sit down in person (if you live in Fairbanks, Alaska), chat over the phone, or talk via Skype.
