Kelly Kristensen - Editor

Red Deer, AB, Canada

I help fiction writers prepare their manuscripts for self-publication or submission to agents by offering editing and critiquing services.

Overview

I am a freelance fiction editor. I help fiction writers prepare their manuscripts for self-publication or submission to agents by offering them services such as manuscript critiquing, stylistic and developmental editing, and short story services. I’m a member of Editors Canada and a guest member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, and I have decades of experience writing and analysing fiction of all genres and have focused my university degree on literary criticism and creative writing. I am a lover of books of all genres. I read 80+ novels, short stories, and plays every year. I am a defender of the Oxford comma. I get excited walking through a bookstore, and I prefer buying a new book over almost anything else. I believe in continued education, and I take workshops, seminars, and webinars throughout the year so that I stay up to date on writing theory and publishing trends, and learn how to serve writers and readers better. I spend most of my spare time with my book-loving children, adventuring and having fun.
