Developmental editing for Fiction, Nonfiction, Magazine articles, Novels, Personal Essays, and Queries

If you are looking for honest feedback and critique for your novel, nonfiction book, personal essay or query, I can help. For decades I have worked with writers to help them strengthen their writing and get it ready to submit to agents, editors or to self-publish. 

If you are ready to take this step, contact me and we can begin to transform your writing into the best it can be. 

“I received pings of interest from agents/publishers on my manuscript, but wasn’t getting representation. I needed help from a professional editor. Kerrie showed me where my writing hindered the story and detracted from a reader’s experience. Her critique—which was specific, while encouraging—helped strengthen my manuscript, elevating it to a polished project ready to be pitched. Wow! I have learned so much working with Kerrie and am excited to query anew. My only regret is not seeking her services earlier. I highly recommend Kerrie Flanagan!”

"I reached out to Kerrie for a consultation for tips on breaking into the freelance world, particularly for magazines. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and easy to talk to. I gained so much from my one hour consultation, that I trusted her to critique/edit a very personal essay that I had just finished writing. Her suggestions were so helpful, with just simple structure changes that made the story stronger, while keeping the integrity of my writing and voice. I now feel more confident venturing out into the freelance world knowing I have Kerrie in my arsenal."
