Poetry Editing and Proofreading Service

Whether you’re a first-time poet or a published professional, seeking a light proofread or some deep-dive edits, have three lines or an epic, I’m here to make sure your poetry gets the care it deserves.

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 poems are to those who write them.

Editing is a collaboration: I read your work and make edits and suggestions; you tell me what you think; and I polish based on what we’ve talked about. For longer projects, this process may happen more than once. But by the end of it all, you’ll have poetry 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!
