Do you need an editor for your personal or professional writing?

I have 15 years of experience as an editor, with a diverse background in content and form. I am passionate about the written word, and I can help your material reach its full potential. I am a fanatical grammarian with a knack for writing concise prose. I understand story structure and can provide constructive feedback to propel you into your next draft—or I can put the finishing touches on a final version.

I can edit:

  • Web content
  • Feature articles
  • Press releases
  • Blog posts/columns
  • Marketing materials
  • Essays
  • Short stories
  • Memoir excerpts
  • Resumes
  • Cover letters
  • Professional bios
  • Miscellaneous copy

No matter how large or small, I want to hear about your project!


  • Heavy copyediting/substantive editing (including written comments/feedback): $50 per hour
  • Proofreading: $35 per hour

“I am a Pushcart Prize nominee. I have been published in numerous magazines, including, but not limited to, Time, Dame, and Gargoyle. I have created television shows I sold to major networks, and wrote two-and-a-half manuscripts, one of which I got an agent for upon my first submission. I punctuate at a grade three level. I write the words. Everything else is Chelsey Drysdale.”Angela Featherstone, author, actor, model
