Our Approach To
Raise your hand if you love to edit.
No one? Big surprise.
At Inkling Creative Strategies, we understand that for many writers, editing your work can be drudgery—boring work that makes you feel stuck & discouraged...
...not to mentioned scared you'll make a mistake that will then be immortalized in your published book.
But what if it doesn't have to be that way?
We work with you to do the heavy sentence structure lifting, ultimately leaving you with a completed, edited book, not to mention knowledge about your writing style so you can both complete your project & improve your future writing.
How It Works
Line editing explores issues of sentence structure, clarity, diction, & grammar that exist on the sentence level of a project.
If you aren't sure what issues you're having with these elements or just want a guide to help you figure out what your style is, this package will help you achieve this goal. You can expect...
A detailed, line-by-line edit of your project so you can see precisely what changes need to be made for a perfect final copy
A written analysis of your writing style & its strengths so you can make improvements as a writer for current & future projects
Two Virtual Meetups so we can discuss the feedback, answer questions, & plan for what's next.

PRAISE FOR INKLING CREATIVE STRATEGIES
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of hiring an editor?
Writing is hard to do in a vacuum. We create best when we have a community to share our work, get feedback, & make it stronger as a result. Inkling Creative exists to provide the community & mentorship to help authors achieve their goals.
The other benefit is that, quite simply, our minds play tricks on us. When we are too close to something we've written, it makes it easy to miss problem areas—especially when it comes to sentence structure & grammar. An editor can help create distance between you & your work so you can truly understand what it needs.
What makes your services unique?
Inkling doesn't just slap some comments on a Google doc, email it to you, & send you a bill. It creates a relationship. Think about it as life coaching for your novel or writing goals. You will get personalized attention & feedback every step of the way.
What training & experience do you have?
Kori Frazier Morgan has worked in multiple areas of the writing & education fields for 15 years, with nearly half of that time spent teaching communications, creative writing, & composition at the college level.
She has also created educational materials for The Economist's GRE preparation course, McGraw-Hill, & Shmoop.com, as well as working as a copywriter & content specialist. Her work has appeared in numerous literary journals, most notably Shenandoah, Forge, Switchback, & Blanket Sea, where she was nominated for Best of the Net 2020. She is the author of two books, Bone China Girls: A Poetic Account of a Female Crime & The Goodbye Love Generation: A Novel In Stories.
What previous projects have you worked on?
Inkling has provided services for authors of memoirs, poetry collections, fantasy novels, literary fiction, essays, short stories, children's books, & much more. Many of our authors have gone on to publish their books, some of which are featured in our Bookstore.
Are there any genres or subjects that you do not accept?
We do not accept any work of an erotic or pornographic nature or any projects that glorify violence, suicide, or drug use. If you have doubts about whether Inkling is a fit for your writing, feel free to contact us & ask.
How much does your editing service typically cost without the discount?
Our typical rate is $20 per 1,000 words. We give your manuscript the highest level of attention of any other services we offer, carefully reading it at least twice & going to painstaking detail to give you the feedback you deserve. With this month's discount, your special price as an Inkling subscriber will be $17/1000 words.
Do you offer payment plans or flexible pricing?
YES! We want to make sure as many people as possible who need our services can access them. We will discuss your individual payment situation should you decide to sign up & work the plan into your contract.
How long will it take to complete my editing project?
It depends on the length. Since we read each manuscript twice & do a thorough edit, it can take up to a month. We want to ensure that you receive the best possible recommendations & that we miss nothing.
What formats do you prefer for submissions?
We are big fans of leaving marginal notes. Google Docs, .doc or .docx, & PDFs all have acceptable tools for providing these comments.
What kind of guarantee do you have for your services?
All services are 100% guaranteed. If you are not satisfied with your experience for any reason, please contact us & we will issue a full refund.
Is this service confidential?
Inkling does NOT sell, transfer, or share ANY client information with ANY other party in any way. Our contact forms are on secure servers & all documents reviewed, as well as any feedback Inkling provides, remain the intellectual property of you, the original author.
