Learn how writer Kirsten McNeill can help you write the perfect piece.
Writing is my truest passion. I’ve always loved creating new worlds and adventures to share and inspire others. That’s why I started a business called K.M. Writing Services (spoiler alert! The K.M. stands for Kirsten McNeill – that’s me. What a plot twist, eh?).
I’m looking for new challenges and ways to improve my skills. I’ve been writing professionally for over four years now and I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. I love to read and learn what others have to say in their writing. Together, we can work to create a masterpiece.
Here are the services I offer, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for, don’t forget to ask:
Editing, Proofreading, Critique – Writer Kirsten is an Editor!
You’ve finished the first draft of your piece and a few close friends have read it and offered criticism. Now what? You need an objective point of view on this project you’ve worked on so passionately. That’s where an editor comes in. I work on developmental and structural editing.
Developmental is all about the plot, the characters, everything that gives your story heart. I read it and guide you through comments on how you can improve it to ensure every aspect of how the story is told is well-developed. Structural is more technical, looking at grammar, sentence structure, and whittling down unnecessary words and paragraphs. Developmental checks what is happening in the story, while structural checks how the story is told.
Proofreading is the final read-through before your piece goes to print. You’ve already gone through grueling rewrites and beta readers and you need one last check before you release it to the world. A critique involves me writing an analysis of a specific aspect of your piece. Do you need help developing an outline or idea? Or is there one tricky spot of the story you need to fix? I can help guide you.
These services are charged based on the page count. For first-time clients, the first 3-5 pages I will do for free so that you know if my editing style is right for you.
Web Content & Marketing Copy
These services involve your business. Web pages. Social media posts. Product descriptions (my favourite thing to do). Brochures. Advertisements. E-mails. You name it and there’s a chance I’ve already worked on something like that or am looking to improve my skills.
Anything online or print copy marketing requires creativity and business savvy to capture a potential buyer or client’s attention. Create an experience in a short window of time to get them hooked and eager to learn more about you.
Blog & Article Writing
I run my own blog and I’ve done my fair share of research for essays and articles in college. Once we get to know each other and I understand the tone of the piece, your audience, and what information you need, I can create beautiful pieces that engage, teach, and entertain.
I love writing about music, nature, books, movies, music, travel and many other creative topics. That doesn’t mean I limit myself to those. I’m open to learning about any topic and writing with passion to ensure your piece is electrifying.
Fiction, Poetry & Letters
These are my favourite categories! My creative mind is always filling up with new ideas. My goal in life is to be a successful novelist, and I’d love to help you create a personalized story to give as a gift or keep for your own entertainment. I enjoy contemporary fiction, mystery, and thriller, but I have experience with several genres. Haven’t you always wanted to be a character in your own book?
Express yourself the way you desire with poems and letters, so that your loved ones know how much you care about them. Giving a handmade gift full of heart is way more valuable than any amount of money you could spend on a physical item. Explore fictional worlds and invest in a magical experience for yourself or others.
All of the services (except for editing, proofreading, and criqtique) are charged based on word count.
