Editing Services

I’m pleased to offer editing services to writers looking for developmental editing and/or line editing of their manuscripts. I work with writers on their books of memoir and literary nonfiction and, on occasion, on their book proposals.

In addition to my experience writing and teaching memoir, I have a deep background in English literature, including a BA in Literature from Yale University and an Andrew D. White Fellowship in Comparative Literature from Cornell University. For many years, I have also been a book critic for venues ranging from the New York Times Book Review to The Nation, Salon, Kirkus, and the Village Voice.

My fees are more affordable than those of many other editors working in the field, and I enjoy working with writers who may have great talent but not great reserves of cash. I look forward to hearing from you. Please contact me via the form below, or by email at growingupgolem AT Gmail.
