I work with writers at all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming and development through refining, copyediting, and proofreading. I've worked as an editor, writing teacher, writing consultant, and dramaturg, with professionals, amateurs, and students. My goal is to help you make your work the fullest embodiment of your voice and vision.
This can take the shape of a one-time read-through with big-picture and smaller-scale feedback, or an ongoing relationship where I support you through the process of drafting and revision.
Rates: Starts at $2,000 for full-length manuscripts, depending on length. Please inquire for rates for ongoing work or a few coaching sessions.
Proposals & Query Letters
I can work with you to package your work for literary agents and publishers, honing your project to its sharpest form and highlighting the elements that publishing professionals will love.
Rates: Starts at $75 for query letters, $750 for proposals (depending on length).
I also offer bigger-picture feedback on your project's overall structure and flow, in the form of an in-depth editorial letter and/or hour-long conversation.
Rates: For essays, starting at $350 for up to 8,000 words. Full-length book manuscripts start around $1500, depending on length and feedback requested.
Copyediting & Proofreading
Copyediting entails smoothing your sentences, polishing your prose, and catching grammatical errors. Proofreading catches typos and formatting mistakes.
Rates: Copyediting starts around $2000 and proofreading at $1250, depending on manuscript length.
What My Clients Say

"Jaime helped me edit my book and I couldn't recommend her more highly. In addition to her being a pleasure to work with, prompt, and attentive to detail, I found both her prose and her abstract at a birds' eye view invaluable. Any writer would be lucky to work with her!"
