SERVICES AND FEES

I work primarily with fiction, both short fiction and novel manuscripts, as well as narrative memoir. I work with both literary fiction and genre work, including fantasy, science fiction, horror, thriller and young adult. I do not work with poetry, academic papers, technical writing or grant proposals.

Writing is hard, and taking the creative leap into the unknown can be scary and lonely, but it doesn't have to be. Whether you are around the corner or on the other side of the world Paper&Ink Editorial will be with you all the way.

COACHING AND EDITING

Consult to determine if your project is a fit for Paper&Ink Editorial with brief synopsis and ten page writing sample is free.

COACHING

Coaching is my specialty. We work together closely developing and editing your manuscript on an ongoing basis. Every two weeks, writers submit 20 new pages which I read and mark up  thoroughly with craft-based comments and personalized suggestions as to how best to make your manuscript what is wants to be. Each submission is followed up with a video chat or phone call to go over my suggestions and to plot a path forward.

EDITING

I will read your manuscript and line edit your work with a keen eye on word choice, syntax, rhythmic sentences, eliminate cliches, hone dialogue and voice, compression to eliminate redundancy etc. As well I will read with bigger picture concerns, such as getting the plot right, structure, theme, spirit of place, voice and tone.Each submission is followed up with a video chat or phone call to go over my suggestions and to plot a path forward.

ONE-ON-ONE LESSONS

I offer one-on-one tutoring with lessons tailored to your specific needs as a writer. We meet face-to-face digitally over Zoom and explore elements of craft though writing exercises and readings. Working together one-on-one differs from coaching in that all the work is done in real time, emulating a classroom or tutoring situation. Writers of all ages may benefit from one-on-one attention. Submitting additional work is priced the same as my manuscript editing service.

YOUR MANUSCRIPT MATTERS

"The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave it neither power nor time."
