Editor for hire. Edwina’s Editing Services

Introducing EES – Edwina’s Editing Services

I have had many years experience in reading and assessing fiction, subediting and editing newsletters, short stories and book manuscripts.

I’ve recently completed the Editing and Book Production Diploma through Macleay College, Sydney, and am keen to expand my experience as a freelance editor.

All work considered. No job too small.

My introductory offer is $25 AUD to edit 2,500 words. If you think we work well together, and you’ve got a longer work, then that amount comes off your final bill, and you’re also entitled to a 10% discount on the rest of the editing project.
