Poetry Editing 


I have extensive training in the field of poetry. I offer three packages. I’ll read your poetry and offer suggestions how you can strengthen each poem. I’ll look at word choice, similes, metaphors, images, and how the poem sounds when it’s read aloud. I’ll ask if the theme of the poem is consistent throughout, are there repetitive words, and how the poem impacts the reader. Most of all, I’ll do so letting you accept or reject my editorial suggestions in the end. You have poetic control. It is never an editor’s job to change the author’s voice, rather only make suggestions to make your work stronger. 


Often a poetry editor will indicate which poetry they read, or what poetic voices they are drawn to. I feel as a poetry editor, it’s my job to look at how your words are making poetry on the page. My personal poetic likes and dislikes must be cast aside as I read your poetry. It’s my sole purpose to read your words silently, read them aloud, and only make suggestions on how to make your poem more impactful and publishable- or any other poetic goal we have agreed upon together.
