Editing Services

I offer poetry manuscript consultations, copyediting for poetry and prose, and proofreading for poetry and prose, including fiction and other genres.

My editing rates are based upon the Editorial Freelancers Association rates, using their range as a sliding scale. We will determine your rate after I view the text to see what kind of editing and level of involvement is needed.

If you’d like to do a poetry manuscript consultation, I’ll read your manuscript, make suggestions based on questions and concerns you have, offer suggested line edits if you’d like, identify publishers who might be a good fit for your work, and offer a 1 – 2 hour in-person or video call to discuss your manuscript in depth. The rate for this is $500 for up to 70 pages, $600 for up to 100 poetry ms pages. I can offer additional in-person or video call discussions for $100 per hour.
