Editing Services

Looking for support with your writing? I offer several, affordable services to help you:


Book Review PREVIEWS – Want honest feedback on your manuscript BEFORE it goes out to the world?  

Poetry Editing – Trying to pull together a collection or need some help with individual pieces?

Query & Pitch Support – Getting ready to approach a literary agent or publisher and seeking some professional guidance?


As a writer myself, I appreciate the amount of effort, energy, and yes, emotion, that goes into producing creative work. I’d love to help you refine your writing and get it out into the world meeting readers! 

I pride myself on my attention to detail and my quick turnaround time. I enjoy working with both new and experienced writers across a wide variety of genres. You can even work with me as part of an NDIS plan.

Please note that I do not read hate speech and do not have the emotional bandwidth for abuse memoirs. Everything else is fair game, though my areas of expertise are contemporary fiction, literary fiction, poetry,  YA, and children’s lit, including picture books. I also enjoy nonfiction, leaning towards personal rather than academic work.

Interested? Please get in touch and tell me more about your needs.

I look forward to working with you!
