Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $20

I have been writing and editing fiction for several years. In that time I have published over 20 short stories in half a dozen periodicals. I also have experience editing both fiction and nonfiction works.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland and have worked both as a copy editor and copywriter in the past.

In my portfolio you will find a few samples of my published short stories and blog posts, as well as a recommendation letter from one of my long-term editing clients.

Service Description

For ghostwriting projects, I am willing to write a single draft or work through several drafts over time. Writing credits will be at the client's discretion.

For editing, I'm willing to take a single pass at a piece or work with you long-term to make your story perfect perfect. I generally prefer a coaching style of editing, in which I provide you with both written edits and informal discussions over the phone or Skype.
