Andrea Barilla Editing and Writing Services
I provide a full range of services, specializing in copy editing/line editing and proofreading; book and general writing consultation and coaching; manuscript critiques and developmental editing; agent and publisher researched lists; query letter and book proposal development; and social media networking and platform building. I am comfortable working within all types of style guidelines, especially Chicago and AP. I’m also a member of ACES (the American Copy Editors Society), Publishers Marketplace, and Word Weavers International, Inc.
What to Expect:
I like metaphors, so I’ll call myself the Whole Foods or Fresh Market of editors. No Walmart in these parts.
What does this mean?
It means quality is of utmost importance, and I provide a holistic experience with each client project.
This is evidenced by:
-Personalized attention and sensitivity
-Critique and feedback packed with rich suggestions and resources
-An additional market-savvy perspective that seeks to elevate your work to its best potential
-A roster of long-term, repeat clients (visit http://www.andreabarilla.com/testimonials.html)
As a writer myself, I understand how connected we are to our pieces, and I will do my best to provide kind yet quality, unbiased feedback.
Of note: Having edited 150+ online courses for the acclaimed Savannah College of Art and Design, I bring a fresh, digital perspective to the books I edit.
Thorough and expressive are two qualities I can’t shake, so meaty feedback and emails are likely. I do my best to streamline communication, however, and organize feedback for easy readability.
As someone who provides such close, holistic attention to each project, I need the same commitment from clients to their work, which means reading my correspondence and following their deadlines as well.
If you’re serious about your work and looking to take it to the next level, let’s talk!

My experience teaching, creating, and editing print and online curriculum and textbooks has made me a seasoned candidate for educational publishing projects as well.
