Personalized Feedback

 After reading each manuscript thoroughly, I write an in-depth analysis of the work from the first page to the last. 

Once finished making notes, I curate a list of books that your manuscript is in conversation with stylistically and thematically.

Recommended Reading

Chapbooks

(Max 35 pages)

$75.00

Chapbooks are smaller, focused projects that tend to revolve around fewer themes or subjects than full-length manuscripts. With chapbook editing, I take special care to focus my attention on a few key areas such as cohesion, thematic arc, and voice. Is there a clear subject or list of questions the manuscript takes up? Am I let in on the insight of a unique and pointed voice? As always, I will ask for any items, in particular, you'd like me to comment on. 

Full-Length | Summary Letter

(Max 120 pages)

$150.00

When editing a full-length collection, I focus on elements like voice, cohesion, thematic arc, and publishability. A summary letter is like a book report (remember those?). After reading the manuscript, I write a 2-3 page summary of the manuscript's themes, subjects, and include an overall analysis of the work. In my analysis, I focus on the experience from the first page to the last which include comments on voice, ordering, and memorability.

Full-Length | Comprehensive Analysis

(Max 120 pages)

$225.00

When editing a full-length collection, I focus on elements like voice, cohesion, thematic arc, and publishability. A comprehensive analysis builds upon the idea of the summary letter by including a 2-3 page summary of the manuscript's themes and subjects as well as in-depth notes on each poem. By including comments on individual poems, we discuss not only the strength of the manuscript on a whole but on the strength and memorability of each poem.
