Tracy Locken Editorial Services

Encouraging, open-minded freelance editor offering copyediting, line editing, developmental editing, proofreading and manuscript evaluations. I bring the polish to your words, empowering you to freely create.

Your words. Your voice. Polished and clear.

My foremost goal as an editor is to help you bring your work to its full potential while carefully maintaining your voice.

Editing your own work is hard! Being edited is possibly harder! My editing style is warm, encouraging, and constructive. I aim to not only bring clarity to your work but also help you see how you can build on your strengths.

I’m a creator like you—I understand what it’s like to love a craft, but maybe not relish every task necessary to reach excellence in the final product. I’m here to help. I can help smooth and elevate your story and take the burden of finishing touches off of you so you can boldly focus on creating.

I work across genres including fiction and nonfiction (adult, new adult, young adult, middle grade). These are my areas of focus:

Commercial and Literary Fiction:
general, suspense/thriller, action, adventure, romance, crime, comedy/humor, women’s fiction

Speculative Fiction:
fantasy, paranormal, soft sci-fi, magic realism, dystopian/utopian, apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, supernatural

informational, self-help, inspirational, comedy/humor, history, travel

Let’s talk about how I can help you!
