Poetry & Picture Book Editor

Hello, writers, and welcome to Kaila Desjardins Editing!

What you write is special to you, as it should be. We’ll work together to make your project better, not different. I want you to be happy with the final results, which means I never forget just how special these poems and stories truly are.

By the end of our time together, you’ll have something publication-pursuit worthy, whether that’s the route you want to take or not.

I offer developmental editing, copy editing, and proofreading for poetry, and copy editing and proofreading for children’s picture books. You can find more details on my Editing Services page.

If you might want to hire me as your editor, contact me! Let’s see what we can do for your project.

Client Reviews and Testimonials

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 that I can now publish it with complete confidence!

~ Lexis Zenobia, author of Many Moons and Motels (coming soon)

Kaila has been so patient every step of the process, understanding and very communicative! She jumped on completing the job right away, and was able to provide much-needed proofreading services. She is great, would love to work with her on future projects. She is someone who is gentle and kind, and someone you can trust with your writing.

– Al Frankie, author of Heartbreak PSA

Great and honest feedback, really fast turn-around. Loved that Kaila pointed out how my words would make her feel and how certain phrases could be viewed from other points of view. Really structured and professional feedback.

– Patricia, poet
