Editing & Critique Services

I offer editing and critique services on several levels, from basic proofreading to detailed copyediting and ghostwriting, as well as mentorship packages, manuscript evaluations, and developmental editing on essays and book-length manuscripts.


In my critiques I will look for strength and potential in your work. I’ll tell you where your writing is most effective and how this can be enhanced. My critique will include editorial corrections in grammar, punctuation, and usage, as well as craft-oriented guidance that will provide you with skills to shape and polish a particular essay and tools for use in your future writing projects.

I have worked with writers on the following types of projects:


  • Individual literary essays

  • Short stories

  • Articles and book reviews

  • Polishing website copy

  • Book coaching

  • Manuscript evaluation

  • Query letters and book proposals

  • Developmental editing and mentorship on projects of any length

  • Consultation on storyboards, structural feedback, submission strategies,   and more


Pricing is customized. To learn more and to see whether we might be a good   match, send me an email at lisaohlenharris@gmail.com.
