Hi! I’ve enjoyed providing feedback on many wonderful stories recently, so I thought I’d expand it to offering editing!
My qualifications: Bachelor’s in European History with double minor in English and Creative Writing. Master’s in Early Modern History. I’ve spent the past 5 years straight editing for academic papers, as well as fiction/non-fiction stories. Editing for historical papers is super grueling so I had some of the best editors I’ve ever met tear my papers apart, helping me learn what good editing looks like!
This service is absolutely free and I am happy to edit any genre EXCEPT for Fan Fiction (sorry, but it’s the only genre I’m not fully confident in working on and I want to do my best for your story).
I will look at spelling, grammar, formatting, structure, flow, and pacing. HOWEVER, since writing involves a lot of stylistic choices, everything (aside from spelling) is subjective and you are not obligated to make the changes I suggest. That being said, I WILL tear your story apart and I WILL nitpick, because I want to see you write the best story you can and ensure your readers see your story the way you envision! I do ask that if you apply my edits, you give me credit in your story’s description blurb: “Edited by @SKBissett”
For ease of editing, please make your story available in a Google Doc. If I accept your story, I will contact you via PM so you can send me the Google Doc link privately. I will make edits in another color and send it back to you.
I don’t know how many people will respond to this, but since editing is a grueling task (as I mentioned above), I may only take 2 or 3 stories before closing this offer. I will choose which stories I will edit, it’s not necessarily first come first served.
