Word By Word Writing Design

Developmental, Literary, and Technical Manuscript Editing and Writer Coaching

What can Word by Word Writing Design do for you and your writing project?

I edit books and stories for writers wanting to refine and/or publish their work. I edit and evaluate fiction and non-fiction manuscripts so they might be presented to editors, agents, and publishers in clean, vivid form.

Because I have been in the writing business for many years, I know the absolute necessity of trusted feedback. I offer overall feedback and recommendations for enhancement to projects, as well as developmental, literary, and technical editing and coaching that can aid writers attain literary mastery.

I respect the individual voice and intent of each writer, and preserve the integrity of the writer's intent, always.

I guide books and stories to full potential, streamlining wobbly prose, muddy ideas, and shadowy characters into vivid and clear narrative images and dialog that grab and hold the reader.

My goal always is to help writers realize their potential and achieve their literary goals.
