I’m an experienced editor, and I want to edit your novel.
The stories I love most are queer, fantasy/sci-fi, ones with a dark mood/tone, gray morality, and anything with vampires. I’ll edit prose fiction and screenplays, short or long form.
MFA in Writing.
Current job: Proofreader
Are we a good fit? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for quotes on your project and to ask more about services.
Tier 1: Proofreading. Light copy editing.
You usually don’t let anyone see your house (manuscript) when it’s a mess, but you (the author), and I (the editor), are besties, so you don’t turn me down when I offer to help you tidy up (proofread) before the big party (publishing your story). When it comes to your story, this means we’re putting final touches on your manuscript for the sake of professionalism, flow, and clarity. Basically, the light stuff. Setting the table, opening the curtains, stocking the bathroom with soap and toilet paper, making sure none of the rugs have their corners turned over. Not a deep cleaning, but necessary tasks to make sure your project is polished.
This tier is for you if your manuscript is already tight content-wise and requires only light editing.
