Editing Services

I am a passionate editor specializing in Adult Romance and YA.

I’ve worked with authors through many stages of the editing process as an editor at Scarsdale Publishing. I offer developmental editing, copy editing, proofreading, and editorial assessment services. My editing process is a bit more detailed than others—which translates to better revisions. I provide an editorial letter, as well as in-text edits, and like to hop on a phone or video call after my clients take a look. This way, we can brainstorm a bit together, and I can address any questions you may have.

My diverse editing experience—from book editing to technical editing—allows me to bring a unique, attentive lens to my projects. Being well-versed in guides of style and having a Master’s degree in Writing and Rhetoric, I provide honest, detailed feedback and edits to ensure that your story resonates with readers.

In addition to being an editor, I’m an author, avid reader, and member of the book community across many social media sites like YouTube and Instagram. I have also attended the Writer’s Digest Conference and Pitch Slam and received multiple requests from agents for my own young adult contemporary. My love of stories (and telling them well) translates to a detailed, thoughtful style of editing.

Thank you for considering me for your project!

Testimonials

Morgan’s clear, detailed notation makes it easy for anyone to understand. Her edits both improve the deeper meaning and the surface level of the work, by incorporating major and minor changes. All of which she breaks down to the author in a comprehensible way. Her grammatical changes are thorough and her word choice suggestions bettered the piece in every way. Morgan helped me immensely with my MFA portfolio; without her guidance, I was lost, but with it, I had a clear path to success. Her expertise is obvious and impressive, and I would absolutely work with her again!
