Editorial Critique Services
Do you have a fiction or creative nonfiction piece that you professional feedback on? Whether you are at an impasse, or just want another pair of eyes on your work, I have extensive experience critiquing creative writing and would love to help.
I have taught upper level college creative writing classes, lead community workshops, worked in editorial roles at numerous literary magazines and have held fellowships at the Kenyon Review. Consistently, one of my greatest joys in writing is when I have offered feedback to other writers and later had them share with me that my feedback led to publication,
What you can expect: I will provide a full critique of your manuscript. This will include line level suggestions, as well as macro level suggestions for improvement. You should expect to see numerous suggestions through your work both in the form of tracked changes and comments. I will also provide a letter with a summary of my feedback. I will provide specific and actionable feedback. My goal is to leave you with input that makes you feel hopeful and excited about revision.
What this is not: This is not a professional copyediting or proofreading services. While I may note errors as I read through your piece, copyediting/proofreading is not the purpose of this service. I also cannot guarantee the future success of your work. It will be on you, the writer, to take any suggestions and make them work best for your piece.
Cost: $2/page with a $30 minimum. For works over 50 pages, please inquire first for the total cost as novella and novel length work requires a greater time investment in terms of both line level and developmental suggestions. Payment is accepted via CashApp (preferred) or Venmo. Please note in estimating costs that standard formatting is 1 inch margins, double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font.
If you are interested, please fill out the form below. If I feel we are a good fit for one another and I have the bandwidth, I will let you know that I am able to accept the work. I will provide you at that time an estimate for completion. If all terms are acceptable to both parties, then once payment in full has been made I will begin my work.
