What You Can Expect from WordPlay Editorial:
Many people don’t know what to expect when they hire a freelance editor. You can be sure that I will:
Ask you a lot of questions about your piece to help me understand what you’re trying to get across to the reader.
Respect your voice and vision. As a freelance editor, my job is not to impose my vision on your piece of writing. My job is to make sure your vision is coming across on the page as effectively as possible.
Suggest possible changes to structure or phrasing if something isn’t working.
Here are the services I offer:
The Big Picture
I’ll evaluate your manuscript and let you know the general areas that need improvement in terms of character, plot, theme, etc.
I’ll offer broad stroke comments along with detailed line edits, pointing out potential problems at the sentence level.
Queries and Proposals
I’ll help you craft a query that best sums up your project and put together a proposal package to send to publishers or agents.
WordPlay charges for most projects on an hourly basis of $75/hour. Flat rates may be offered for more complicated projects.
