While prices are initially set, I am open to working with your budget to create a specialized plan that fits your needs and my time.
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.
During a 1-hour video conference, we discuss my recommendations, feedback, and overall experience reading your manuscript.
(Max 35 pages)
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)
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)
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.
