Do you have a draft lying around that you’ve looked at a hundred-million-quadrillion times that you know needs some structural work but then you don’t know because you’ve been looking at it so long that perspective has decided to take a long vacation to Mexico to lounge on the beach and drink cervezas with the locals?
Or maybe you have a draft that is ready to go except for a quick copy edit.
Or maybe you have a manuscript of poetry that you want some feedback on before sending it in to that publisher you’ve been eyeballing for the past year.
Or maybe you have a short story that has been gone over by your writing group, your aunt in Des Moines who had that one book published twenty-eight years ago, and your lover, but you want to get a fresh, unbiased opinion on the piece.
Or maybe you own a small business and want to make sure your advertising copy or website content is in ship-shape.

Here are just a few examples of what clients have to say:
“Jessica is the first editor I’ve ever worked with that I’ve been truly taken aback by. She takes my writing and turns it in to what I thought it was; she streamlines my words, makes me sound the way I sound in my head, and refines things in such a way that the reader doesn’t notice I’m rambling. In all of my years, with all of my editors, she’s my top choice.” Kimberly Hodell, Music Reviewer
“Gayle Towell is not only a fantastically talented and prolific writer, but she also possesses one of the keenest editorial eyes of anyone I’ve worked with. Over the past few years, she’s become my go-to first reader for any type of creative work because she gives such detailed constructive feedback, not only concerning narrative structure, but addressing things like voice, characterization and the more nuanced aspects of writing. We write in completely different styles, but she looks past all that to the heart of the story. Her feedback on my novel Fait Ave was invaluable and played a large part in me securing an agent, who subsequently sold the novel to a large independent publisher. I want to tell everyone to use her services, even if that means I have to wait in line.” Nik Korpon, author of Fait Ave, Four Corners (Dzanc Books, 2015).
