Manuscript Review and Developmental Editing
Drawing on my many years of experience as an author and an editor, I can help you turn that messy manuscript into a well-organized, polished masterpiece that your readers won’t want to put down.
In addition to working on book manuscripts, I can help with shorter pieces: blog posts, essays, columns or articles. My training in journalism has given me a keen sense of how to pull readers in with compelling lead paragraphs, and how to hold their attention for the long haul.
PRAISE FOR MY MANUSCRIPT CONSULTING SERVICES
“I spent a year working with Jennifer on my memoir and we had a very productive collaboration. With her deep knowledge of the form, she helped me shape my story for greater impact, suggesting where I could go deeper, how I could use structure to pull in my audience, and what I could do to make my book more marketable. Her insights improved my storytelling, while her support and encouragement motivated me to think more strategically about my future as a writer. Thank you, Jennifer!” –BB
“THANK YOU SO MUCH for your close reading and enthusiasm. What a gem you are!”–MG
