Editing

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."
