Blue Sky Editing helps writers build their writing careers. Whether you aim for traditional publishing, self-publishing, or somewhere in between, making the choice to build a career in writing can be daunting and confusing. Blue Sky Editing works in concert with individual writers to draw a map of what they want from their writing career, and how to get there. 

  • Whether you're pitching to publishers or publishing it yourself, Blue Sky Editing can give you an edge.

Blue Sky Editing's core service is editing, with optional satellite services designed to help writers build their writing careers. These services are called 'Edges', because they were created to give writers an edge in the competitive world of publishing.
