Editing Services

I am available for editing services and can be contacted here. I can be found at my LinkedIn profile. I am a Professional  Member of the Institute of Professional Editors, and a QUT-approved thesis editor.

I have 10+ years experience in literary publishing (novels, stories, non-fiction), which includes typesetting, printer liaison, design, and general publishing knowledge. I excel at all levels of editing: substantive editing, copy-editing, and proofreading. I am also available for thesis-editing and journal-article work.

I’m offering the flat rate of $50 for manuscripts up to 2000 words if you want to get a sample of the work I can do.

I am also available for freelance writing work.

Testimonial(s)

It’s vital an editor has an eye for detail. What’s less often discussed is whether editors have a heart for detail. Bodhi brings an engaged heart and astute mind to the practice of editing. He cares deeply about the writer–editor relationship and its importance in helping writers grow and develop. In Bodhi, you have a partner for the writing journey, not a hired hand. Never strident in his feedback, he has strength of mind and patience that comes from many years’ industry experience. Bodhi won’t let any boulder, stone or speck of dust remain unturned in his journey with you towards your best manuscript.

After working with Bodhi on a submission package for my book Changing Gears, I contacted him for some help with a short story I was working on.

Bodhi’s manuscript assessment and editor’s report was incredibly thorough, and deeply engaged with the text. The changes he suggested helped me to improve thematic expression and character development by combining two versions of the one manuscript into a short story in time for submission to an award deadline. I was really stuck on getting this story to work, so Bodhi’s feedback incredibly helpful.
