Annie Kuhn – Editor

Developmental Editor and Line Editor specializing in children's books with experience at Clavis Publishing.

Overview

Are you dreaming of bringing your children's book to life? Look no further! I am a seasoned developmental editor with extensive knowledge of the children's book industry. I currently contract with Clavis Publishing as editor of their U.S. editions and I would love to work with you too!


With a keen eye for details and a passion for uncovering authentic voices, I can help you bring out the soul of your story. Whether your writing style leans toward humor, lyricism, spare prose, or rollicking verse, I can help you develop your ideas into a compelling narrative.


My service entails an intensive manuscript critique to enhance your overall story. Covering essential elements like story arc, character development, structure, setting, dialogue, language/style, subplots, and thematic ideas, the critique also delves into current market trends to position your story strategically.


I'm ready to share my wealth of knowledge with you—let's make your story unforgettable!
