HOLLY CONKLIN Writing and Editing

Services

 I offer a variety of services for a variety of clientele

Below, I describe some of my most popular services. Need something that’s not on this list? Contact me about what you’re looking for and we can discuss how I can help. For a more detailed description of what a copy edit entails, see this page.

Trying to get a book published?

When a publisher does get behind your book, it will of course put your novel through its own editing process. Before that, though, the publishers need to see just how skilfully crafted your work is, and I can help with that. I’ll go through the first 50 pages of your manuscript and copy edit for clarity, consistency, and correctness; I’ll help make sure the publishers aren’t distracted by grammar or spelling so that they glide through those ever-important first pages.

Self-publishing?

The traditional publishing process is not for everyone. If you’re looking to publish your own work, I can help. I’ll work with your manuscript to help you create a polished, professional, grammatically correct book. For a novel, I’ll keep track of characters and plot to make sure the text is consistent. Writing fantasy or science fiction? I will scrutinize every spell cast, every fantastic beast named, and every remote planet mentioned and make sure all the details line up. For nonfiction, I’ll pay close attention to your documentation and I will make sure your references are consistently written. I’m familiar with libel and copyright laws and I may even be able to help you avoid an unwanted legal situation.

Need writing or editing for your business?

I’m familiar with search engine optimization and other inbound marketing techniques, and I have experience writing web content. I’d be happy to create content for your business, whether for a blog, brochure, poster, or whatever else you may need. I also have excellent research skills; if I don’t know about a topic, I’ll find out. Already have content written? Let me copy edit it for you. I’ll watch for grammar and spelling, check if the numbers add up, and make sure your content follows a consistent style.

Need something else?

I’ve described my most popular services, but I also have a background in academic writing, screenwriting, and teaching English as a second language. If you think any of these experiences could be useful to you, let’s talk about it!
