Lara Ehrlich has 20 years of experience editing content of all kinds, from resumes and college essays to dissertations and novels.

Everyone needs an editor. I’ll be yours.

I work with published and emerging writers at all stages of manuscript development, from shaping an early draft to preparing a manuscript for submission to agents, editors, or journals.

As a writer myself, I know that it can be stressful to hand over your work for critique, so I provide notes that are as invigorating as they are critical.

I work with my clients to determine the scope of the editorial project, ranging from simple line-edits to intensive developmental editing. For larger projects, I offer editorial letters, telephone consultations, and detailed manuscript mark-ups.

Services include manuscript consultation, career materials like resumes and cover letters, publishing guidance like querying agents and developing synopses, coaching and tutoring, and more.


Resume & Cover Letter

“Lara’s expertise and editing style gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to revamp my cover letter and resume.  Her educational and collaborative approach not only strengthened my work but also taught me how to word my letter beautifully in order to grasp a reader’s attention. Without her guidance, I would not have landed my dream job.” 

Chelsea Deakin


“Lara’s skill as a writer makes her a first-class editor.  She instinctively knows how to get prose off the ground and make it fly. I recommend her editorial services to anyone interested in giving his or her work a sharp, honest edge.”

William Gebby



“Lara Ehrlich is the first person I turn to when I need help with a piece of writing. I trust her judgement completely. Her kind and constructive feedback has made my writing far stronger. She has a sharp eye for identifying what works and what does not, and how to make it better.”
