Editing Services

General Information

As the writer of any type of content, you have done the hard work. So first, congratulations! You did it! Now, you need a guide, a trusted adviser, to help smooth out any potential issues.

I act as that guide—a beacon—building a trusting partnership with you through kindly worded queries, astute suggestions, and changes that preserve your voice.

Instead of paying for multiple editors, you can hire me for your substantive editing and copyediting needs in one packaged deal, saving you time and money. My package deal includes several editorial rounds so I can focus in on every detail while also addressing big-picture issues.

My credentials

  • Completed professional editing courses (see course list)

  • Edited over 40 books, 6 websites, 6 business documents, 20 resumes and cover letters, 5 biographies, 4 personal statements, and numerous academic essays.

  • Earned my bachelor's in English education

  • Graded copious amounts of student essays during my eight-year teaching career

Editing services I offer

  • Copyediting (line editing): fixing errors with grammar, usage, spelling, and punctuation; suggesting changes to sentence structure and word choice, ensuring your language is clear, fluid, and pleasurable to read; and ensuring consistency.

  • Substantive editing (also known as developmental): suggesting and making changes to content and organization—ensuring clear, coherent delivery. With fiction this means looking at plot, characters, setting, pacing, and point of view.

Clients I work with

Each individual client page contains my rates, portfolio, contact form, and reviews.

  • Authors: fiction and nonfiction books. Currently offering a 40% discount to fiction authors.

  • Business Professionals: website content, business marketing documents, self-marketing documents (resumes, cover letters, biographies, and personal statements)

  • Students: academic feedback, essay writing help, and self-marketing documents

It was a pleasure to work with Katie – she is detailed, efficient and professional. I liked her so much that I hired her to do additional work for me, I highly recommend her.
