Do you want professional feedback on a section of your writing? 

Maybe you are on a tight budget.

Or you want to know what it is like to work with an editor before you invest 100s to 1,000s of dollars.

Maybe you just want one or two scenes looked over before you move on.

I can help! My name is Shelby Bunker and I’m a trained editor offering critiques on first pages and 1,000 word passages.

I’d like a first page critique!

*Please read the specific submission instructions below before purchasing.

Submission Instructions

Once you receive an email from me initiating the editing process, make sure your writing meets this criteria. Documents that do NOT follow these guidelines will not be edited.

  • All documents must be in word (preferable) or Google docs. Please attach any documents to the email. DO NOT paste your writing into the body of the email.
  • Documents must use 12 pt font (preferably Times New Roman)
  • Documents must be double spaced with 1 inch margins

These guidelines ensure that the editing process can begin smoothly, without unnecessary delay. They also make the editing process faster by keeping the document easily readable, thus enabling me to keep my prices affordable. Lastly, they prevent anyone taking advantage of the first page critique by altering how many words appear on the first page.

In 2016, I graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor degree in English and a minor in editing.

I am a detail-oriented editor and have always been an avid reader.  My education and work experience have given me a wide range of skills. I have experience editing for content and grammar.

I am passionate for language, and I am committed to helping you communicate your message and engage your audience. I can work quickly without sacrificing quality.

You and your project are my number one priority. You can guarantee that while we work together your project will be my most important task. I will work hard to ensure that you have an excellent experience and that you receive the services you seek.
