Jordi Kerr

creator and curator of stories

I offer a range of editing services for manuscripts, with a focus on young adult fiction and speculative fiction.

Beta reading

Not sure if your story is hitting the sweet spots? A beta read will check your plot for pacing and structure, and your characters for consistency and believability. I can also provide sensitivity reading on representations of same-sex attraction, and gender diverse characters. Rates start at AU$350 per manuscript.


proof reading

This is all about the detail. A proofread will correct those pesky typos and grammatical inconsistencies, and get your manuscript shiny-as for its date with the printing press.


line-by-line editing

The whole shebang. From overall structure down to individual word choice, I'll consider whether each line of your manuscript is doing its best to contribute to your story. At this level, you're not just getting an editor, you're getting an ambassador for your story.

 

To discuss your writing project's needs, get a quote, or book in an editing service, contact me.
