EDITING SERVICES


Inkchanger red pen edits

After ten years as a writing tutor and a few books of my own, you think I’d be sick of editing, but I find something deeply satisfying about deconstructing a manuscript, trimming fat and polishing gems, then lovingly stitching it back into a cohesive work with a strong voice and sense of purpose.

There might be something wrong with me.

If you need straightforward, comprehensive feedback on your writing project from someone who genuinely enjoys the process, I’d love to help!
