Editing Services

Picture Books

Picture books are my favorite! From adorable to zany, picture books in any form are magical. They help foster empathy, social and emotional wellness, and are endless fun! As a literary agent, I understand the the market can be tough. With low word counts and room for illustration, picture books can be more difficult than they seem. This is where I come in!

In this edit, I will help refine your writing by evaluating your story for voice, structure, and pacing, as well as overall marketability. I will review your characters and language to be sure they progress the story. My editing style is encouraging with compliments on what is working, thought provoking questions, and actionable ways to improve.

About Me
