VSR Editing Services

I offer a wide range of manuscript services:

 

  • Development editing

  • Stylistic and organizational editing

  • Narrative and creative critique and feedback

  • Scrupulous copyediting

While I specialize in books (fiction, creative nonfiction, academic), I’ve helped writers develop, improve, and complete work of almost every kind. I take great joy in helping authors move from the fertile chaos of inspiration towards the coherent book, story, article or academic essay they're struggling to write.

I take my commitment to each writer seriously. I deeply respect both the challenge of writing and the sovereignty of the writer. I work to support your vision and intentions for the work, never to supplant them.

Areas of particular interest & experience:

  • International conservation, development, social and environmental justice, climate change, agriculture, forestry, food security, wildlife biology and ecology

  • Literary fiction, fantasy and science fiction

  • Latin America

  • Multilingual writers working in English

 

At any stage in your project, I'm glad to help. Drop me a line on this page or at robertvsredick@gmail.com.
