I have an undergraduate degree in screenwriting (University of Texas at Austin) and a graduate degree in Writing, Literature and Publishing (Emerson College). I worked at Houghton Mifflin and Pearson before leaving to pursue my own work. However, I do still take on the occasional editing project.
I’ll look at anything except explicit sex and gory horror.
Prose: $0.017 per word for up to three rounds of edits
Screenwriting: $1.00 per page (one round)
For new clients I will either edit a short story (up to 5000 words) for free or offer a 50% discount on my standard rates.
Once (and if) I accept your project, 50% of the cost is payable (PayPal only) at the time of your official submission. The remaining 50% is payable after the final round of edits.
To Query or Submit a Project
Email me with a description of your project and, if desired, the first five pages pasted into the body of the email (I won’t open unsolicited attachments). Let me know if you’re looking for a developmental edit or just a line edit (proofreading/copy edit). Chances are I’ll mark everything either way, but it’s good for me to know where your focus is.
