Gila Green

Gila Green – Editor

I love helping authors and academics polish their work. I've edited dozens of books to publication including fiction, nonfiction and YA.


I have three decades of experience helping writers from all over the world, working at all levels, turn their manuscripts into publishable prose. As a published author of 6 novels (2 forthcoming) , I've been there, no matter where you are with your work. My detailed edits will address macro issues in your work such as voice, pace, and character arc. We can use email, shared Google doc and zoom meetings to work together to produce the book that you want to write. My manuscript evaluations focus on big picture development and line editing. I specialize in fiction, memoir, auto-fiction in both adult and YA works. My expertise includes query letters, synopses and book proposals. I'm an EFL lecturer at the Jerusalem College of Technology (Machon Lev) and use that experience to edit academic works and articles. As someone who has lived in North America, the Middle East and South Africa, I have a broad canvas to draw upon. As a lecturer to students from Russia to Ethiopia to France, I'm comfortable with a wide variety of topics and backgrounds.
