Pam Wells: the writer’s ally

You’ve completed a first draft of your book, your story, your essay. That’s awesome! Congratulations!

Okay, back to work.

As a developmental editor, I’ll evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your fiction or nonfiction project and show you how to address any concerns. I can guide you through the minefields of story, structure, characters, language, mechanics, and more.

As a copyeditor, I can make sure your pages are error-free.

Still, you may be wondering, do I really need an editor? I explore that question here.

Please check my services page for more details, take a look at the testimonials from writers I’ve worked with, and tell me about your writing. I’d love to see it.
