Poetry & Short Fiction Editing Services

Whether you’re a first-time writer or a published professional, I’m here to make sure your project gets the care it deserves.

What I edit:
– Poetry: individual poems and collections
– Short fiction: short stories and novellas up to 40,000 words

What you write is special to you, as it should be. It’s my job to make sure you’re happy with the final result, which means I never forget just how special these stories and poems are to those who write them.

Editing is a collaboration: we’ll work closely to make sure that by the end of our time together, you’ll have something fit for publication, whether that’s the route you want to take or not.

Client Reviews

Kaila was incredible to work with. She was fast, efficient, knowledgeable and her attention to detail was unlike anything I have ever seen before. She caught things my prior editor had missed and her communication throughout the entire process was clear and professional. I would highly recommend working with Kaila on any project and I speak from experience and experience only. You will not regret it. Thanks again Kaila for piecing my book together in a way I can now publish it in complete confidence!
