Copy editing

editing service

It’s impossible to overstate the importance of editing in the process of writing a book (or any other document). No one, no one, is the best editor of their own work.

I am an experienced text editor (in several genres), and several poetry manuscripts I’ve edited have gone on to become successful first collections.

As well as mentoring and appraisals, I offer an editorial service to get your manuscript looking its professional best before you send it off.

I will:

  • Check for sense, literals, contradictions and other conflicts, repetition
  • Line-edit for consistency of usage, terminology, punctuation, style
  • Edit your manuscript in house style, if you have one
  • Help you shape your poetry collection if desired
  • Work with you to develop a book out of the poems you have
