Copy Edit and Proofreading Services {As of 9/15, not taking on new clients. Please check back in November.}

If you need a smart, friendly editor with a sharp eye for detail and a strong sense of the Big Picture, please contact me through this website. I'd be delighted to discuss your work and see how I can help make your writing sparkle.


A published author, I've also edited and critiqued novels, short stories and newspaper articles. I've worked at major corporations based in New York City, which has given me a flair both for promotional as well as narrative writing.

Services include:


Copy Edits: Correct typos and punctuation; includes very basic comments on characterization and story structure if needed.


Story Development / Copy Edits: Includes character development, story structure, and scene transitions. I make notes in the margins and present you with a one-page report at the end.


Fast Turnaround: I'll conform to your timelines at each step of the process.


Fees are determined by your needs. Tell me what you're looking for and I'll give you a quote.


Looking forward to hearing from you!

Recommendations from Published Authors

John Yeoman, novelist: My US friend Diana Holdsworth has just launched her own editing and proofreading service for bloggers and other writers. I highly recommend her. She did an ace job on my debut novel The Cunning Man which has gained more than fifty 5-star reviews across five Amazon sites in just eight weeks.
Jendi Reiter, novelist and poet: “Thanks, Diana, for your thoughtful critique of my novel manuscript TWO NATURES. You gave me insight into my characters’ motivations and encouraged me to share more of their vulnerabilities. You’re a great support for writers.”
