Wells Editing provides literary services and story development for writers seeking publication, competitive advantage, and professional insight into the craft of writing.

PHWYou may be looking for help on a particular project, or you simply want to become a better writer and need a mentor. I can help with all of that.

Pam Wells: the writer’s ally

Your job is to make sure your work is in shape before sending it out for consideration or publication. My job is to do whatever I can to help you be the best writer you can be. I’ll guide you through story holes, character slips, and sentence malfunctions. I’ll wrangle your commas. I’ll help you to organize your narrative or nonfiction elements in a way that satisfies both you and your readers.*

I’ve worked with authors and screenwriters in a variety of genres. Project-based clients receive a comprehensive evaluation geared toward the specific needs of the work. Craft-based clients receive extensive mentoring to help them develop their skills. I offer research and book design services as well, on a limited basis.

Please check my services page for more details, take a look at the testimonials from writers I’ve worked with, then contact me. I’d love to hear about your project. 

*Yes, but do I really need an editor?
