Amy Shaw - Editor

Windham, CT

Whichever phase of the writing process you're in, you can talk to me. Expert with English grammar, yet also a creative thinker.

Overview

No matter what you are working on, I will work hard to understand what you mean and help you express it in what you say.

My experience is in editing contemporary fiction and nonfiction genres such as personal development, memoir, and technology. I am skilled in both early-stage editing like advancing plot lines and developing characters, and late-stage processes such as proofreading.

In me you will find a partner in your work. I am willing to take on as heavy (or light) a hand as you need. My relationship with authors--and prioritizing their needs--comes first.
