Years of Editing Experience: 10


  • Bachelor's Degree (honors) in English with a Concentration in Creative Writing and Poetry

  • Edited over 500 poetry books to date, many of which are bestsellers (i.e. "I'm Rising" by Michelle G. Stradford).

  • Over 3,000 positive reviews on a leading freelance platform.

  • Achieved "Top Rated Seller" and "Pro" status on a leading freelance platform.


Hourly rate: $40 USD

  • All payments are done via PayPal.

  • 25% of the estimated fee must be provided as a deposit before the editing process commences. When half of the manuscript is edited, another 25% fee will be charged. Upon completion, a detailed ledger will be provided denoting the total time it took to edit your manuscript. At that point, the remaining balance must be paid. The tracking in the document will be locked but still viewable until that payment is received.
    For example: A 10,000-word poetry book requiring a level two edit (with commentary) could take up to 10 hours. The estimated fee would be $400. So, before getting started, you'll be charged $100. Halfway through the process, you'll be charged another $100. By the end, you can expect a remaining fee of around $200.

  • You'll receive updates via email. Extensive consultations (not the updates) will be regarded as part of the editing process and will be considered in the final payment.

  • I make sure to send a thorough freelance contract (pertaining to scope of service, intellectual property, compensation, and confidentiality) that we both sign before I start the project.

Rei is a talent that soars well above the standard of editors. I have worked with several editors and she is top notch. Being professional is easy for most—couple of good lines, little bit of manners— and you're good. She takes it beyond that and through her work, shows the love for her craft. Personal and professional make this gig the best I have used. She nailed the timeframe, price and deadline we had set, also "checked in" with me halfway through the project to inform me of the progress. I can not express this enough, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Rei, thanks for the care that you put into my dream.

-Ben Johnson, Client and Author of "Trials of Emotions"



I continue to be amazed by this editor’s services. She is concise and she is very talented in sharpening poetic work. Her comments are brilliant straightforward, and easily understood. I also used her poet bio services and she saved me a lot of work and time. All in all, if you are considering anyone to enhance your work, she is the one!

-Haya Onallah, Client and Author of "Inside, Outside"



I’m so thankful and impressed with the amount of attention to detail my poetry was given in Rei’s hands. she went above and beyond what I expected. My favorite and most cherished part of her work, was the genuine and constructive comments she had for each of my poems. I will definitely come back to her for future work!

-Cortney Owen, Client and Author of "Awakener"



Rei did an amazing job editing my manuscript providing critiques, suggestions, and edits that helped drive clarity in my messages and storytelling. She is in high demand, but waiting to get in her queue was well worth the time. She is a consummate relationship management professional with impeccable communication skills. Loved the way she provided updates on her progress. I will seek her out for future work.

-Michelle Stradford, Repeat Client and Author of "Rise Unstoppable"



Rei has edited 3 of my poetry books now. She has helped a lot with my grammar and finding spelling errors. Her critiques have helped me to immensely improve my writing style. She has pushed me to look for ways to connect more with my readers and as a result I have been able to continue to improve my craft.
