Freelance Editing

by Rebecca Inch-Partridge

Hello there:

Welcome to my virtual office.

 

If you’re looking for a freelance editor specializing in fiction and memoirs, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been critiquing manuscripts for over 20 years and turned professional freelance editor a few years ago. I love helping writers bring their manuscripts up to the next level. 

I’m also an author. So, if you’re curious about my writing, you’re also in the right place. My short stories and articles have appeared in a number of magazines. Some are available here in both written and audio formats.

 

Which are you interested in today?

Mission Statement:

Helping authors to share their stories in a way that engages readers.

Thank you for your interest in my editorial services. Here’s a little about me:

I fell into freelance editing by accident and immediately knew I’d found my calling. As a writer, I’ve belonged to writers’ groups for over twenty years. I love the synergy, and am passionate about giving feedback to help authors bring their writing to the next level. Eventually, so many people were asking me for critiques that I had to start charging. Luckily, writers were happy to pay for my feedback, and after a while a was able to quit my day job. Now I am a full-time editor and author. I am truly living my dream.

I am an active member of Gold Country Writers, a seventy-member strong group dedicated to supporting local writers.  I serve as the director of breakout critique groups.  I am a slush pile reader for the world’s oldest science fiction magazine, Amazing Stories. So, I can spot things that might get your story rejected and what might get it passed up the editor-in-chief. I am also a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

My favorite projects are speculative fiction, mysteries and memoirs, as well as young adult fiction of almost any kind. I am not limited to those genres; however, I do not take on horror or historical romance.

If you have a project you’d like to discuss with me, or would like to receive 5 free sample pages of editing, please use the contact form below.
