Green Seed edited my 45,000 word novel quickly and comprehensively. Melinda’s comments and suggestions about conventions, word choice, continuity, and organization have improved my document exponentially. Her services were EXACTLY what I needed. Outstanding.

She is an amazing editor. She was very thoughtful of the intent of the writing and made normal words sing. She is a great editor and helped me get an A on my final masters thesis. Couldn’t have done it without her. Punctual, fair, and experienced editor.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is always fair! The amount varies according to the level of editing involved. I usually charge per word, but sometimes it's a flat project fee. Language arts and writing tutoring is an hourly rate. I do offer a discount prepayment option.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, we have an extensive phone conversation so I can learn about you and your project. Then, I usually ask for a written sample of work to determine how I can best help you. For students, we schedule a first lesson, which includes a brief evaluation and we proceed from there.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Harvard University B.A. in English; Lesley University Master's in Education; over 25 years of experience, including school administration, private tutoring, and editing; Adjunct Professor of English Composition & American Literature; and published author. Most importantly, I'm meticulous, patient and conscientious.
