Services and Rates

Lara Zielinsky, DBA LZ Edits, provides a full range of editing services for the narrative (story) writer. Whether your story is real, fictional, or fantastical, you will find I am as dedicated as you are to developing your best story. I love coaching and nearly every edit I suggest will have a comment explaining why it’s needed. I’ll also give you several suggestions how to fix a problem so you can pick the one that feels most like “you.”
