I have a short chapter of a children's book/YA fantasy that I'd love somebody to edit. It's only 10 pages long, double-spaced.

I'm looking for someone with an ability to show not tell and instinct to cut out parts that seem extraneous to keep the pace flowing. Anything to make the characters and story pop, really.

I believe I need more than an editor; I need somebody equally creative who can write AND edit. This may lead to more work, so please only apply if you have had work published in the YA genre by a reputable publishing house, or if you have strong experience as a YA editor.

I attach the chapter in question and look forward to your thoughts.

Kind regards,
LP
