I started my career at Firefly Books. For the past 6 years, out of the traditional office, I have been the go-to editor in my network for feedback and editing on writing contest entries. It has been an immense joy to watch their journeys from the first story to the most recent, and hearing about their successes in submitting to contests.
For the past 2 years, I have also been a volunteer editor for The Ripple Foundation's Annual writing contest.
Working with me as a developmental editor, you can expect a Summary Report that goes into detail on areas that could be improved, and questions to consider before diving into the next draft. I also offer a complementary second-look at your revised draft in order to give you some advice on next steps for your work.
I'm hoping to work with your story, not against it. What I want more than anything is for you to keep moving forward!

"My partner and I have now worked with Nicolle on several projects. She has quickly become a trusted collaborator, providing both objective and constructive criticism. She has been instrumental in expanding the creative potential of each script she has worked on, as well as ensuring it keeps up with current audience expectations. Her notes always come in a timely and professional manner, and I would fully endorse her as an asset to any team." - Rob Fitl
