HOW IT WORKS

1) Purchase one of the above services

2) Email [email protected] with:

  • subject line 'Editor Meetings BMC firstname lastname’

  • in the body of your email please provide the title of your work already or to be submitted to our ‘editing services’ extra

  • *NOTE: you cannot purchase only an editor meetings listing. This listing is only to discuss the edits made by the editor; the edits themselves are done through the purchase of the editing services listing.

  • If you are located outside of Alberta, Canada please include your time zone

3) You will receive separate emails from YEGWrites Admin ([email protected]) confirming receipt of your file (editing services) and editor assignment (editor meetings)

4) Your assigned editor will reach out to you via email to find a date and time that works for both of you to meet. All meetings will take place over Zoom. You do not need to turn your camera on if you don't want to.

  • *Note that editors cannot discuss edits with you over email, only through the edits made on your file and during the editor meeting

  • If you purchased a CONSULTATION, your editor should contact you within 3 business days to arrange a meeting. If you purchased a DEBRIEF, it may take up to 2 weeks to hear from them as they need time to make their edits before meeting with you. Please do not email your editor asking about progress, how long it will take, editing questions, etc.
