Melanie Neale, Developmental Editor
With undergraduate and graduate degrees in creative writing, over ten years of experience teaching composition and creative writing, and countless publications to her name, Melanie Neale is the ideal developmental editor for your project. She provides copyediting services, manuscript consultations, and assistance with the revision process. She is also available at a day rate for lectures and individual or group writing workshops and instruction.
Melanie Neale is keenly aware of the effort and commitment it takes to publish a book. When her first memoir, Boat Girl, was published by Beating Windward Press in 2012, she realized that new authors need much more than editorial help. As an editorial consultant, she will make herself available to coach you through the process, offering copyediting and editorial services, marketing and social-media assistance, advice on how to handle sensitive issues in your writing, and strategies on what to do once your book is published. She works with all authors, whether they are planning to self-publish, working with a publisher but wanting some extra support, or simply hoping to become published one day.
