Editing Services

***Go to the CONTACT PAGE or email at povandajared [at] gmail [dot] com to reach me for more information about the editing services I offer, my flexible rates, and my fast turnaround.

Flash Fiction and Nonfiction 1000 words and below ($3), 1001-2000 ($6)

I love flash fiction and nonfiction, and I’ve had my own flashes published all over the internet and in print. If you need a second set of eyes to read your story, I can help. I’ll put my all into making your work sing.

Short Fiction and Nonfiction 100 pages and below/2001 words and higher (Inquire for pricing at povandajared [at] gmail [dot] com or the Contact tab).

If you need a second set of eyes to read your short story or essay, I can help. I’ll read for content, flow, pacing, tension, character development, and more. Don’t submit your work without hiring an editor committed to your success!

Brainstorming (Rates are flexible. Minimum is $10.)

Have you ever dreamed of writing the novel that’s living inside you? Do you not know where to begin? Or does your short story come to a screeching halt around the middle? Do you need another opinion or perspective?

I can help with plotting, structure, flow, intentionality, and freeing your stuck story. My minimum for this service is $10.

Application Essays/Personal Statements ($15 per essay.)

This is an important one for me. If you’re in high school and stressing about applying to college, or if your dream is to head off to graduate school, I want to help. For $15, I’ll read your essay once, help you revise it, and make sure you’re following school guidelines.

I want you to make a statement with your personal statement.

Query Letters ($20 for 2 passes per letter.)

If your query needs a second set of eyes, I’m your guy. I can read for flow, immediacy, content, and research submission rules and guidelines. For $20, I’ll read a first draft, one revision, and help make sure you’re following guidelines.

If you need something edited that doesn’t fall into one of these categories (including NOVELS and other LONGER COLLECTIONS OF WRITING in excess of 100 pages), send me a message! My rates are flexible and vary in accordance with what you want me to do. We can talk to see if I’m the best fit!
