Cate Fricke - Editor

Author, editor, writer-for-hire, and publishing professional available for manuscript critique and content editing. Handy with InDesign too!


I provide manuscript critiques and content editing for short stories, novels, and plays. With a background in both Theatre and Creative Writing, I know a good story when I read one, and enjoy helping authors craft their stories for publication. In addition to my experience as a freelance writer and editor of fiction, I also spent several years as a publishing professional in the theatre industry, where I copy edited and formatted scripts for both traditional and digital publication. MFA: Ohio State University (2011)

"Cate's feedback on my short play was clear and insightful. Her sensibilities are very astute. I'm glad I got to work with her!"
-Bradley Diuguid, playwright

"Cate's insight to formatting and editing brought my words to life! I look forward to working with her again."
- poet Bettina "Gold" Wilkerson, author of "When My Soul Speaks, I Scribe"
