Editing Services

As a freelance editor specializing in both substantive (content) editing and line editing, I love working with authors to make their stories the best that they can be. I am a proud member of the Northwest Editors Guild, and am currently open to queries from writers interested in working with me. Please consider my services if you are looking for:

  • Advice on how to revise and strengthen your completed first draft 
  • Suggestions to refine your voice and improve your writing style
  • Tips for fleshing out your characters
  • Guidance on how to strengthen your plotting
  • Assistance in finding and fixing plot holes and logic errors 

There are some types of freelance work that I do not do. Please do not query me about:

  • Nonfiction
  • Erotica 
  • Incomplete first drafts
  • Ghost writing
  • Research assistance/Project management

Send me an e-mail at lindsay@lindsayschopfer.com with the subject “Editing Query” if you want to discuss your project and see if I’m a good fit for your specific needs.
