Request an Estimate and Sample Edit

Please note my editorial calendar is usually booked 2-3 months in advance, so I cannot often accommodate turnaround of large projects (more than 60K words) with short deadlines (under three weeks). Please review the relevant section below for details pertaining to your project, then submit an estimate request using the form below.

What I Accept and What to Submit

I get a lot of questions regarding my availability for a particular project with limited details about the requirements. This section is designed to clarify what I need from you to determine my availability for your project as well as prepare your estimate.

These projects make up 65-75% of my project base each month. If your project is technical, corporate, nonprofit, or general digital content, send me a sample page or two. I am happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement for the courtesy of previewing the material you need edited.

Send me your excerpt of up to 2,500 words and your absolute deadline, if you have one.

I typically accept fiction up to roughly 70K words, give or take a few thousand. I do not edit horror, erotica, LGBTQ, racism, politics, or poetry. Please send me your synopsis and the first two chapters. If you can also send a chapter from the middle, please do.

As of summer 2020, I am no longer accepting fiction editing projects of 90K words or more. I am, however, happy to try to connect you with another editor within my network of qualified professionals, so feel welcome to email me for a referral. Note: This does not apply to my coaching clients.

I accept nonfiction projects of up to roughly 85K words or so. Please send the first three chapters. If you can also send a chapter from the middle, please do.

As of summer 2020, I am no longer accepting nonfiction copyediting projects of 120K words or more. I am, however, happy to try to connect you with another suitable editor within my network of qualified professionals, so feel welcome to reach out to me.

Note: This does not apply to my coaching clients.
