SELECT YOUR PACKAGE

At HY Edits, we place as much emphasis on the process of brainstorming as the writing itself. Depending on the package you choose, we can help you comb through past experiences and start a story from scratch, or we can identify ways for you to make that first draft into its best version. We’ll look for cliches, tell you where your ideas need clarification, and flag places you can be more concise. Based on what you're writing and where you’re at in the process, you can choose from one of several packages.

NEED FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE?

At HY Edits, we strive to provide equal opportunities and access no matter what your socioeconomic background might be. Our education system and workplace are built in ways that benefit those who already have resources, continuing to widen the opportunity gap. And so, for those who may need a hand, we want to help. If you believe you fall under special circumstances — e.g. you are paying your way through school, you are homeless, your parents can’t support additional classes — and could benefit from subsidized services, send us a note responding to “why a subsidized service is critical for you.” (max 250 words)
