Writing Refinery is the editorial company that I developed for authors who are serious about their work but aren't quite ready for publication. The services that we offer allow you to strengthen your story. Through our eyes, you are able to gain a whole new perspective on your work.
As an author, you know everything about your story. Oftentimes, something you thought of while you were falling asleep has defined a character to you... but we don't know that. Allow us to show you how to bring the world in your mind to the page.
Allow us to guide your hand as you revise, rewrite, and sometimes throw scenes away altogether.
What do we do?
Through comprehensive copy-editing, we eliminate simple mistakes, overused phrases and improper use of the vernacular. We catch passive verbs, weak passages, miscommunications, lost commas, misplaced semi-colons, and deal with the whole herd of grammar.
Through careful reading, we locate inconsistencies, plot holes, and errors.
We help you learn about your strengths and weaknesses, not only to improve this novel, but also to give you the tools to write a better first draft next time.
Let us help you find the fun in editing!
