favorite this post Literary editor--novels, short stories, memoirs, and more hide this posting unhide

I'm a freelance editor with fifteen years' experience at a publishing house in Manhattan as well as five years with a critiquing and editing firm in San Francisco. I have experience with creative fiction as well as non-fiction; my most recently completed projects include a memoir of a boyhood in Alaska, a textbook on estate tax law, and a literary thriller novel. Dozens of my clients have published books, both traditionally and via self-publishing. Excellent references available.

Rates range from just over a penny a word for proofing to three cents a word for full critiques including character, plot, and style analyses. I'm also available to simply read your MS and talk to you about whether it's ready to be marketed, its skill level and promise.

I'm also a publishing fiction writer, author of a story collection and novel, both of which were featured in the New York Times. I recently completed a fellowship at Harvard's Radcliffe Institute while working on my next novel. I've published reviews and essays in New York Magazine, O, the Oprah Magazine, Esquire, The Sun, and many others. I have an MFA in Fiction and Screenwriting from the Michener Center for Writers at UT Austin.

I also offer wedding vow packages to help you find the right words for that special day (yes, even last-minute!)

Please email me with questions, or for more details on the editing process.
