Martha Carlson, Editor, LLC
Portsmouth, NH and Remote
Literary Fiction, Upmarket Fiction
Seasoned, supportive editor of fiction. Nothing is more exciting than editing a manuscript to help a writer recognize the possibilities for bringing a book in progress to the next level. I specialize in developmental editing of literary fiction — which can take many forms and play with different genres but which has at its core a dedication to craft as a means to create engaging characters and stories. My goal is to honor your voice and vision as I offer professional advice for making your book as compelling and competitive as possible. As your editor, I’ll give your work an insightful, deep editorial analysis, focusing on its overall effectiveness — while tailoring my comments to the needs of your particular manuscript. Let me notice any issues before a publisher or an agent can see them, and let me offer specific advice for making your work even stronger.
