Hi Tammie,

I'd love to help you edit your short story. I have professional experience in editing and proof reading, and am passionate about literature and creative writing.

I have a degree in English literature and writing from the University of Auckland, and I edit and proof read professionally for clients from all over Australia. Creative writing is my strength, and I'd be happy to devote myself to your story and give it my all.

Clients use my proof reading and editing skills because of my excellent grammar, spelling and attention to detail. I go above and beyond when it comes to editing, not only fixing grammar and spelling mistakes but also rewriting and rewording when needed to improve overall structure and flow. I'm an avid reader and write creatively in my free time, as well as professionally for my own business.

If you're interested, I'm more than happy to send you a sample page free of charge. If you'd like to send me a sample page or contact me, please email me at freyagavaghan@gmail.com.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks, Freya

As a professional editor, I have worked with a number of authors to help make their short stories shine. I emphasise the importance of providing sound advice while always taking into account the vision of the author. Editing is a collaborative process between an author and an editor to ensure the writing is the best it can possibly be.

My experience has included not only short stories for publication but as a commissioning editor of a small independent publisher I also reviewed many manuscripts and provided structural advice on novels.

I'm also a published author, with several short stories of my own in print and online, so I know how daunting the editorial process can be. I always keep that in mind when providing editorial feedback.

If my bid was successful I'd ask you send a copy of your story with a brief outline of what your goal or intention with the story is (where you want to see it published, what the tone you're going for is, what rough word count you'd like it to be and so on) and whether you're wanting just a proof read or broader editorial advice. I'd provide you an edited version within 2-3 days with notes.

Please note my estimate is based on the story being around 5,000 words. At 10,000 words it would be $290.

Hope to hear from you.

Hell Tammie my name is Kalena. This opportunity sounds like the perfect project. I'm a student and extreme bookworm who is on break looking for more excuse to read. I am a perfectionist at heart, which has developed due to little mistakes in books/stories I read.
