Editing Services for Writers

Megan Easley-Walsh Author, Writing Consultant and Editor

Writing Consultant: Experienced Freelance Editor with College Teaching Experience offering Editing Services for Writers

Built on over eight years of helping others with their writing, Extra Ink Edits combines college teaching experience, editing and writing knowledge to help you perfect your writing through professional editing services of a writing consultant!

I am a certified English teacher and have taught writing to college students. My editing services have helped writers secure publishing and agent contracts. Working with a writing consultant means that you have the benefit of more than just simple corrections. You learn effective ways to strengthen your writing. It’s an investment in your writing future. Sometimes it takes just a little polish. Sometimes scenes need to be rearranged or characters more developed. Whatever your writing issue, I am equipped to help strengthen your story from general impressions of a beta reader to intense line edits. Content editing is my speciality. I also offer specially individualized writing consulting services. Advice, especially tailored to you, is on offer with answers to all of your writing questions. If you need assistance with crafting your project, booking consultancy hours is for you.

As well as being a writing consultant and editor, I am also a writer and researcher. I understand the process and care about writers.  Industry experts have praised me for my strength of writing, pacing and poetic sentences.
