Reviews & Editorial Services
I have an MFA in Creative Writing (National University, 2019) with a double emphasis in poetry and fiction. I am a widely published pushcart-nominated writer who has placed in many awards. I was appointed to lead facilitator of the Fresno & Online Writers' Workshops for 2020 and again for 2021. I have since assisted dozens of writers with their manuscripts and my expertise is in high demand. Due to this, please anticipate a 24-hour delay in my response to inquiries.
Cultural Competency Review
I will read your manuscript carefully, and provide multiculturally responsive feedback. I will not censor you; I will respect your originality and intentions as I inform how your work can be further improved so it is realistic and inclusive of people from diverse backgrounds. This broadens your novel's ability to touch hearts, which drives sales, good reviews, and overall success. Unlike sensitivity reads offered elsewhere, this is not just about making your work free of offensive material or harmful stereotypes that damage a novel's ability to connect with a broad audience. This is also about making your manuscript feel knowledgeable and genuine so readers are more likely to enjoy the experience. Genres Accepted: All genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, hybrid, picture books, YA. Rate: $0.01 per word ($150 minimum).
Global Feedback Review
I will read your entire manuscript thoughtfully, and make helpful, specific suggestions on the employment and execution of the most crucial writing techniques. In fiction, these include plot, character, environment, subplots, exposition, subtext, backstory, and more. In poetry, they include turns/twists, rhymes, form, physical structure, space, and more. Even experienced authors still require global feedback before their writing can achieve meaningful and lasting success. Genres Accepted: All genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, hybrid, picture books, YA. Rate: $0.01 per word ($150 minimum).
Cultural + Global Combined Review
To offer the most comprehensive and crucial feedback at a reduced rate, this service includes both the Cultural Competency Review and the Global Feedback Review in a combined and discounted package. Genres Accepted: All genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, hybrid, picture books, YA. Rate: $0.013 per word ($150 minimum).
This service is the final step before publication, and a necessary one, even for those with professional degrees in English or Creative Writing. Too many typos can make a book or poem seem unprofessional and unworthy of the reader's time. I will review your entire manuscript thoroughly, correcting all grammatical, wording, phrasing, and spelling errors without altering the original meaning of your work. Though I am human and may not spot every single error, I will bring your manuscript into undeniably high quality, publishable shape. Genres Accepted: All genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, hybrid, picture books, YA. Rate: $0.01 per word ($150 minimum).
How It Works
I will respond with a quoted price, estimated time frame for the service including estimated completion date, and payment instructions.
Once I receive payment, I will send you a confirmation email and get started on your manuscript as soon as possible.
Once finished, I will return your manuscript as a Word or PDF document with suggestions or corrections made using "Comments" or "Track Changes" in Word. You will be encouraged to ask clarifying questions.
