You finished your manuscript; now it's time to polish it. Copyediting corrects and tightens your prose to maximize your story's impact.


"Hannah helps me develop my writing, and she's an incredibly knowledgeable editor to bounce my thoughts off of! I recommend her to anyone who's looking for a methodical and creative editing partner."

—Tenacity Plys, author


I offer a variety of services to meet authors' needs. Check out the Services Overview page to learn more.

Once a story is finished, a copyeditor ensures that the author's voice shines through. Typos take readers out of a story, but a good copyedit will make your book an immersive read.

I adhere to the standards set by the Chicago Manual of Style unless otherwise requested. While editing, I use a variety of dictionaries, including Merriam-Webster. I am comfortable working with both U.K. and U.S. English.

What I'll Check:

  • Spelling and grammar

  • Punctuation and spacing

  • Repetitive, awkward, and cluttered writing

  • Syntax errors and homophone mistakes

  • Dialogue tags

  • Telling versus showing

  • Stylistic consistency

  • Minor plot inconsistencies

What You'll Get:

  • Two rounds of editing

  • A marked-up version of your manuscript with Track Changes on in Word or a PDF mark-up, depending on your preference

  • A proofed, clean version of the manuscript for easy reviewing

  • If desired, in-manuscript commentary showing my reactions as a reader

  • An editorial report that highlights your story's strengths and provides actionable feedback

  • A style sheet catered to your manuscript, recording your story's timeline, character details, and spelling preferences
