Why Me?

Why should you hire me? There are plenty of other options out there. But, a Story Grid editor is different. Our goal is to take a story and make it better. No matter where you start, we can give you actionable advice on how to improve. Additionally:

  • I have been studying stories and writing for over 4 years. I trained directly under Shawn Coyne, an editor with over 25 years of experience. The group of Story Grid Editors offer each other advice and expertise on a daily basis. We have a line of communication to Shawn should we need it.
  • I have gotten a couple short pieces published and am a writer myself. I know the struggles you face firsthand. I’m contracted to write a Story Grid Guide to The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness using the tools from The Story Grid. I’ve taken part in an NYC Midnight Writers competition. I’ve published a book on writing. 
  • I attended Robert McKee’s Story and Genre Seminars, both in 2018.
  • Finally, I have intensely studied other craft guides such as Story Engineering, Writing Fiction, Story, and Plot and Structure and will continue to do so to improve my craft and services.

What People are Saying:

“I’m so very pleased with the guidance Rebecca has given me for my novel! Rebecca is knowledgeable, energetic, efficient, and most of all incredibly helpful. In just a brief period of time, she has given me the tools and a roadmap to greatly improve my novel. I know her input will save me much time, effort, and grief because now I know just where the gaps are between my current draft and the captivating novel I want it to be; and I have a specific plan for how to bridge those gaps! I’m impressed and delighted by the services Rebecca offers, and I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get back to work.”
