Poetry requires specialized editing services to ensure each individual poem and the collection as a whole are as strong as possible. Our experienced poetry editors are familiar with the intricacies of the genre and know how to help you improve and develop your poetry while remaining true to your vision as the poet.
We offer several levels of poetry editing to help you through every stage of the process. Begin with developmental editing to address your poetry's format and the effectiveness of your collection. Then move on to line editing and proofreading.
Developmental editing considers each individual poem and the collection as a whole. You'll receive feedback on the organization and flow of your poetry. Rate: $0.08/word
