In the last few years I've ended up doing a fair amount of critiquing and content editing for a number of writer friends and I've found that I really enjoy it--and I'm pretty good at it. My theatre background helps me analyze plot and character problems and years of academic writing have helped me focus on clarity and flow. This is content editing: word choice, plot arcs, character motivation, prose style and so on. This does not include line editing: proofreading for punctuation errors, etc.
At any rate, I've decided that I'm going to hang a shingle out to provide content editing and manuscript review. Publishers are spending less time editing books, so this is something nearly any writer can benefit from--novice or experienced.
Because I'm new at this, and don't have a huge client list or track record, I'm offering a very low introductory rate: 1.00 a page! Yes, 1.00 per page. That is less than half of what other people charge!
I have some endorsements up from people I've worked with already. I'll be putting more up shortly. You can see them here.
