Request a Quote or Sample Edit
To request a quote or a sample edit, please use the contact form below or email me at beckystephensediting(at)gmail(dot)com with the following details:
- The working title, genre, and total word count
- The premise (in 1-3 sentences)
- Any special concerns you have about your writing (e.g., worries about the overall plot, logical flow, description, or dialogue)
- The level of editing (or proofreading) you’re interested in
- What number draft this manuscript is (first or 20th draft)
Please contact me early if you’d like to schedule editing time for your manuscript. I try to keep a flexible schedule, so sometimes I have blocks of editing time that open up on short notice. Feel free to email me to be placed on my waiting list for any spaces that open up in my calendar.
Because I can only take on a few manuscripts at a time, I am selective when choosing manuscripts to edit. I look for a strong narrative voice and a good understanding of writing techniques. Authors must be willing to accept constructive criticism in order to improve their manuscripts.
