Fiction Copyediting

I will help polish your fictional works, either long- or short-form. I will correct your grammar, spelling, punctuation, and syntax using the Chicago Manual of Style where appropriate, though with respect to your stylistic choices. I will look for places where your writing can be tightened or where it needs room to breathe, polishing your work while maintaining the integrity of your voice. I will also check the internal logic and consistency of your writing, ensuring that your characters don’t travel 500 miles in an hour or change hair color between paragraphs.

My main areas of interest are in both adult and young adult speculative fiction: fantasy, science fiction, weird fiction, science and technological fantasy, and magical realism are all genres where I feel comfortable. I also love to work with fiction featuring queer characters in any genre. However, I am happy to discuss your work in other genres if you think I would be a good fit for your project.
