Fiction Editing / Review

I am available to read and critique your short fiction and novel-length fiction. I am open to other genres of writing as well. I hold a MFA in creative writing from the University of British Columbia and a MA in English from California State University, Los Angeles. I currently teach writing at UCLA extension. 

A critique would include line edits in the body of your text, comments in the margins, as well as a two-page critique on more global aspects of the piece of work. There would also be the opportunity to hold a further dialogue and ask any follow up questions. 

Please email me at writing@caloyeras.com and write CRITIQUE in the subject of the email if you wish to inquire about my competitive rates or if you'd like references from previous clients!

“I have never had a fiction editor as talented as [Jennifer], including when I published a novel with [a top publisher].”

"[Jennifer was the] perfect teacher for this point in my novel-writing. Seriously [she was] like 'manna from heaven' to me. [Her comments] inspired me and I have been working furiously ever since."
