Editing Service

You’re a nice person who overlooks mistakes. I’m the nit-picky grammar freak you need to sniff out your errors and slap your work into submission.

If you have a message to share, a story to tell, or a product or service to promote, I can help. I’ll clean up your writing, add sparkle to your headlines, and punch up your prose. My number one goal as an editor is to help you communicate your message in your voice, with your tone and your personality.

I charge by the word count, not by the hour, so we both know what we’re getting into ahead of time. Average cost is $7 per 1000 words, with a $35.00 minimum. Your project may cost more or less, depending on the amount of work involved. Email me at kathryn.writes[at]hotmail.com. (Use regular email format. I cut out the @, so the spambots don’t catch me.)

UNEDITED CLIENT REVIEWS

“It’s been a great experience working with Kathryn. She is very professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and has an amazing ability to catch mistakes. The corrections she offered were, in most cases, in sync with my own values. Her explanations concerning the changes were easily understood and conformed to English usage rules. In regards to research, she is very knowledgeable in a wide range of subjects. And though she wasn’t doing research on my book, she did reference a number of subjects and provided internet links to support her suggestions. In our communications, she was clear and concise; there were no misunderstandings. The work was completed ahead of schedule. I intend to use her again and highly recommend her.”
–Doyle E. Duke, author of Extended Vacation, among other books.

Kathryn couples her top notch editing skills with a gentle humor and respect for the author’s voice. She’s the best I’ve worked with, hands down.”
