Sarah Cloots, former assistant editor at Greenwillow Books is available for consulting, copyediting, proofreading, line editing, and critiquing.  During her four years with Greenwillow, Sarah edited a wide range of titles, from young picture books through YA.  She can help your book at any stage of the game—from idea development and writing guidance through submission and marketing advice. She specializes in children’s and young adult titles, both fiction and non-fiction, but is also happy to work on projects for adult readers.

If you would like to hire Sarah, please send an email to  with a description of your project (genre, page count, and reading level) and what service you are seeking. Sarah will write back with a rate quote within 24 hours. Once a fee is agreed upon, Sarah and client will decide together on a deadline, and then the client will send Sarah her/his manuscript/outline/questions, etc.  

Sarah has been a regular editor at New Jersey SCBWI events and has helped many of our members improve their manuscripts and get them closer to publication. I am very glad she is willing to share her expertise with other children’s authors.


  1. I’m glad to see Sarah has popped up somewhere!

    All best,
