I’ve had the pleasure of working on some wonderful projects as a freelancer. Some have been published, others – such as projects meant as a gift, or meant just for the writer – have not been.
Below are the published – or soon to be published – works that I’ve edited, plus some client reviews.
WANDERER by Court Young
as a wanderer wild
with brilliant, untamed eyes
and a heart of golden fire.
Court’s review: Kaila was very detailed and on time with everything! Was very impressed with her work. I highly recommend her for your editing needs!
Ocean by Noah Thompson
There was a day when I couldn’t breathe …
so I wrote poems that breathed instead of me.
Noah’s review: It was a pleasure to work with Kaila. I strongly recommend her services.
Heartbreak PSA by Al Frankie
Heartbreak PSA is a vulnerable exploration into all the things that break a young person’s heart. A delicate meditation on the nature of heartbreak in all of its forms as it is experienced through life: by lovers, by friends, by your own undoing. The themes trace the inception of love from insecurity, to passion, into pain and eventual depression. An intimate study of life’s intricate tides of loving and leaving. This is a poetic shelter for those who have experienced the cycle of love and loss, that is often compact with many lessons and emotional discovery.
Al’s review: 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.
Many Moons and Motels by Lexis Zenobia
Lexis’s review: 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!
Confessions of an Insomniac by Jessica Zinn
Jessica’s review: Kaila was incredible to work with, sincere, thoughtful, thorough and collaborative. She was patient and flexible to accommodate my busy schedule. Will definitely use her again in the future.
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, Upwork client
