Let's make your story shine!

I have always been an avid reader. By second grade, I was reading a chapter book a night with the light of my flashlight while everyone else in the house was asleep. 

For years, I took notes on almost everything I read, focusing on what worked and what didn't, as well as common grammar and usage mistakes. I used the notes to hone my writing, but I also dreamed of using those skills to help others. 

I continued to build those skills by completing the Poynter/ACES Copyediting certificate and various webinars and conferences offered through ACES membership. 

In recent years, many things that jumped out at me are stereotypes of various people and misrepresentations of their experiences. As someone who has faced my fair share of stereotypes stemming from neurodivergence, chronic illness, infertility, and more, I enjoy helping writers avoid those issues in their writing by guiding them using my own experiences.

Editing, & Sensitivity Reading

Developmental Editing

Developmental editing focuses on the big-picture items. I look for things like:

  • Does the story flow well? 

  • Is there too much backstory?

  • Is there enough tension in each scene?

  • Does the story start at the right place?

I can edit a full manuscript or give feedback on a partial manuscript to make sure you are going in the right direction.

Copyediting

 

Do you have a short story, blog post, or article you need copyedited? I would love to help you strengthen your writing! Please note that I do not provide copyediting services for any works greater than 10,000 words. 

I hold a copyediting certification from Poyner/ACES and have completed multiple college courses in editing and journalism.

Sensitivity Reading

 

Have a great story that you need someone to read for authenticity? I have Psoriatic Arthritis, Sjögren's Syndrome, PCOS, ADHD, migraines, and many years of infertility. I had my first child in my forties, and can also read for the authenticity of parenting with any of the above. Please reach out if you would like more information!

Manuscript Evaluation

A manuscript evaluation is similar to a developmental edit, but with less detail. This is a quicker overview of how your story is developing. 

Please note that this will not include inline comments.
