Writing for children

is unlike

writing for adults.

Every word only has to be perfect.

Why Pay An Editor Who Specializes in Children's Literature

 Children's literature is required to meet industry standards for the intended age group.


To ensure your work is the best it can be, your copy editor must understand the different audiences within the scope of children's literature.

I have extensive experience with:

  • Young Adult

  • Middle Grade

  • Chapter Books

  • Early Readers

  • Picture Books


What My Service Includes

All children's literature receives the same services as adult fiction.


Please see my manuscript page for details.


In addition to my manuscript services,

I pay extra attention to the intended audience of your work in terms of:

  • Age

  • Theme

  • Word Count

  • Specific Word Choices

For picture books, I include

a developmental edit!

Writing for children is bloody difficult;

books for children are as complex as their

adult counterparts, and they should therefore

be accorded the same respect.

Author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the night-time

I love revisions.
