Editing Services

I’m happy to offer freelance editing. I work with MG, YA, NA and Adult in most genres, but no epic or high fantasy please.

Why hire me? I’m an editorial intern at Entangled Publishing. One of my responsibilities is reading submissions, so I know what it takes for a manuscript to stand out in the slush pile. I also write reader reports where I evaluate the strength and weaknesses of a manuscript. Before joining Entangled, I interned at a literary agency. I’d love the opportunity to work with you and make your manuscript shine.

To learn more about my qualifications, you can check the About Me section.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you’re not sure we’d be a good fit, I’m happy to do a sample edit of your first three pages.

I can’t wait to start working with you!

Hoda’s edits were spot on, and she was able to get at the heart of the story with only a few chapters and gave notes on big picture stuff with far reaching implications for the entire novel. Her edits were exactly what I was looking for.

– Bridgette Johnson, author


I was very satisfied with Hoda’s overall service, promptness, and professionalism. She not only helped me with the formulation and structure of the content, but also gave me the proper tools/feedback for future essays and articles. As a fully satisfied client, I highly recommend her services.
