She Writes Press offers a number of services for aspiring authors, whether or not you intend to publish with our press.
You might engage us for coaching, which involves a one-on-one relationship with one of our talented coaches. Coaching is a lot like intensive workshopping. You get to take advantage of a collaborative partnership with an experienced developmental editor who is focused on helping you see the big picture and polishing your manuscript for publication.
You may also hire SWP for developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading. We have some of the best editors in the industry, and our rates are $80/hour for developmental editing, $70/hour for copyediting, and $55/hour for proofreading.
Finally, you may choose to hire us for a professional assessment of your work. This entails a full read-through of your manuscript. The editor assigned to your project will then give you extensive, comprehensive feedback about what’s working and not working, complete with suggestions and clear next steps for what to do with your manuscript. Assessments are billed at the $70/hour rate.
