Morgan Schafer: Editor. Publisher. Indie Author.

You've written a story! An article! An essay! Congratulations! That is no small feat. But now the real work begins. You've pored over your words time and again, editing and revising and editing some more...and now it's time for a professional.

Whether you've written a flash fiction piece or your debut novel, that paper for class or an article for your blog, Morgan Schafer is happy to discuss your editing needs.



Get to know Morgan Schafer

Based out of New York City, Morgan Schafer began working as an editor offering freelance services as a copyeditor and proofreader. Today, he is co-founder and Editor-in-Chief at new indie publisher Mannison Press, LLC.

Morgan writes primarily science fiction, fantasy, and horror, but has been known to dabble in other genres as well. Current projects include a young adult fantasy and a children's series. In November 2017, he won first place in the On the Premises Mini-Short Story Contest #35. Many of his short stories and poems can be found for free online. 



What You Need


$0.009 per word ($9 per 1,000 words)

Consider this your quality control check and the final step before publication. Proofreading scrutinizes your work for punctuation, grammar, spelling inconsistencies, tenses, and sentence structure. Give your writing a nice little spit polish!


$0.012 per word ($12 per 1,000 words)

More than just a fancy spell check, a full copyedit addresses everything from the little details to the big picture. This goes beyond your basic proofreading to address consistency and flow. Make your project the best it can be!


$0.02 per word ($20 per 1,000 words)

Do you feel like your project lacks something? Need a little help with the overall structure or finding the right direction? If you're looking for more of a collaboration than a critique, then a developmental edit may be just what you need.


$0.001 per word ($1 per 1,000 words)

"The end"...what a great feeling! But before you submit it to your editor, that thing needs some solid feedback. A good beta read/critique can give you that outside perspective and help identify any sticking points or areas that need a bit more oomph.


$10.00 flat rate

Considering submitting your work somewhere but feeling a bit lost or insecure? Sometimes all you need is a little feedback, guidance, and reassurance.


Yes, free!
