I need someone to edit my children's book texts for content, grammar, etc.
There will be a few stories but the first one has about 530 words.
Since some of my stories are poetry I am hoping to find two people to work with. One who is better with poetry, and one who is better with stories.

I am not sure what is an appropriate price range for this kind of work.
Thanks!

Forgot to mention that this (and revising) will be the final step before submitting these stories to an agent and someone with experience in that field would be a plus.
