In case it has not become clear by reading other pages on my blog, my focus is on individual private editorial services more than classes these days.  Since I had to give up my studio my only outlet for classes is the Finley Community Center which is good but offers a limited schedule.

I know some people prefer a class setting rather than private/individual sessions, so they can get others’ feedback as well, and also because it’s less expensive, but I still encourage the private sessions because even though it costs more, you get much more for each dollar spent, which is important because the instruction and editing is focused on your writing and your specific needs.

While it’s nice to hear what others have to say about your writing, popular feedback can be gotten in any free writing group, or just reading to friends or family.  It’s the professional opinion you are paying for which you will take with you into your future writing, long after classes or private sessions have finished.

What I offer between classes in the way of editorial and instructional services is private/individual sessions via email where students send their agreed-upon amount of writing, preferably as a Microsoft Word attachment (after they mail me a check in advance), according to what we’ve discussed and what kind of feedback the writer wants (overall vs. more detailed, etc.).

I only charge for time actually reading or editing your work. Time spent writing emails, other correspondence or “admin” tasks are without charge.

I recommend writers write me to send me up to 2 pages of your writing as an attachment, and I will give you an initial free consultation so you can get an idea of what kinds of suggestions I might have for you. Or if you haven’t written anything yet, just send me your ideas.

I love working with writers and encouraging them to “be honest on the page”, and am delighted you found me. I’m very flexible, so let’s see if we can make this work for you one way or another.

Take care and I look forward to hearing from you.

About Valerie Serrano

I am a true Bible-believing (King James Version) Christian first, recently saved from the darkness that yoga and meditation brought on me (maybe I'll write about that one day). After that, I love my family. Then I'm a writer, editor, book formatter and designer, and a one-woman operation called Let’s Write! editorial services. I love children, and pray they are spared the worst of what's going on in this world today. Truth is my middle name (though it can get me in trouble! :- ) and I always pray to be nothing but truthful in my writing, including fiction. I can be a perfectionist when it comes to writing, editing, and designing, and I enjoy taking the time to be conscientious about getting things just right, but being relaxed enough about it to remember we humans all make mistakes (I learn the most that way, it seems). I'm in the process as I write this (April 2017) of revamping and updating my blogs. Please check them out and bear with me through the process. God bless you and thanks for visiting my site. Valerie Serrano I give all the credit for anything I do right to God's Holy Spirit within me. Thank you, God in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ who saved a wretch like me. :- )
