Editing

Editing a memoir is substantially different from editing any other kind of text and requires sincere sensitivity to your experiences, circumstances, and feelings. It requires attention to nuance. It might even require discussion of family matters. You need to feel comfortable with and have confidence in the individuals who help with your memoir.

We provide full editorial services for both commissioned and assisted memoirs. That includes light, medium, or heavy editing (rewrites); light fact-checking and research; titles, subtitles, captions, and dustjackets. We create a custom styleguide for you so that we can adhere to your grammatical and spelling preferences. We occasionally have a client who wants only design/format, print/bind services; we can do that.
