Poetry Editing

I am thrilled to offer poetry editing services and critiques. I will proofread the poems, offer revision advice and feedback, and provide content edits for theme, imagery, language, and more all in a timely manner. I am happy to discuss what turnaround time you need. Any genre of poems are welcome!

Otherwise, single to 10 poems will receive 1-3 days turnaround. Chapbooks will receive 1-2 weeks turnaround. Full-length collections will be critiqued within one month, but if you need something sooner, we can negotiate that and what a reasonable expedited pricing may entail.

Pricing Information:

Single poem: $5 each (regardless of length)
10 poems (bundle deal): $45
Chapbooks (15-40 pages): $75
Full-length poetry manuscripts (40-80 pages): $100
Full-length poetry manuscripts (80+ pages): $200

All transactions are made via PayPal.

Please email me at saratantlinger@gmail.com with any questions.

If you are ready to get started, please follow the guidelines below!

In your email, please indicate any specific concerns you have for your poetry. I will address a range of areas, but if you’re looking for heavier feedback on a specific focus, let me know. I can’t wait to read your work! Otherwise, include “POETRY EDITING QUERY” in your email’s subject.

I have written two full-length poetry collections that have been well-received, especially in the horror community. My individual poems have been published in numerous journals and zines, and I have also received nomination for a Rhysling Award and a Pushcart Prize nomination. My collection, The Devil’s Dreamland, won the best poetry collection award by the Indie Horror Book Awards and the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Poetry.
