Poetry Manuscript Editing

We will offer notes and edits on your book of poems (30 to 75 pages). If you have a specific goal (MFA work, publication, or just in search of general feedback) let us know in your cover letter and we will help you work towards that goal.

For those of you working on collections longer than 75 pages please query us at straightforwardpoetry@gmail.com. We are not opposed to longer collections, we just want to make sure we have the time to do them justice.

Please send all work in an editable format, preferably Word or Pages. We use Track Changes to mark up documents and will attach an additional letter with our thoughts.

Books will take 4-6 months to be returned, with two additional weeks of follow up emails to address any concerns or questions. The fee for a full set of notes on a book length collection is $200.
