When I joined a writing group of successful authors 11 years ago, I discovered that even the very best writers benefit from a second pair of eyes on their manuscripts before submitting to agents and editors. Within the pages of memoirs, nonfiction works, novels, and screenplays, I find the threads of meaning and help authors weave them into stories that audiences can connect with on a personal level. I believe that everyone has a story worth telling, and it’s my joy to help people bring those stories to life on the written page. My name is Meghan Davis Hill, and I’m a professional writer and editor.
What Clients Say About My Work
“Meghan Davis Hill is currently editing my memoir, and I’m blown away by her mastery of structure, word choice, and sense of rhythm. She possesses an extraordinary ability to discover the soul of what I’m writing about, and then guide me to express it in a way that allows me to connect deeply with readers. Here’s another way to put it: Meghan helps to make my writing sing.” – Marian Sandmaier, author of Original Kin: The Search for Connection Among Adult Sisters and Brothers, and The Invisible Alcoholics: Women and Alcohol in America.
“Meghan’s suggestions about how to improve on character arc and depth of character were not only insightful, but necessary to my screenplay. I was floored when I saw the copious amount of thoughtful and insightful notes that showed she really cared about my project. I cannot recommend her services enough, and I know I will be seeking out her help and advice for everything I write.” – Jason Contino, award-winning filmmaker of Lebanon, Pa. and several other films
“Meghan Davis Hill is an attentive, eagle-eyed editor with great command of story and scene. She offers critical editorial feedback from the global aspects of plot and character to small details. She’s also great at helping writers to recognize and address their blindspots. She’s helped my novel-in-progress develop in ways I couldn’t have done on my own. I look forward to working with her again.” – Jelani Wilson, speculative fiction author of Space Wizards! and Octavia’s Brood contributor
“Meghan is a first-rate writing coach and book doctor. She’s an editor, adviser, cheerleader, and sometimes therapist!” – Susan Montanari, children’s book author of Hip Hop Lollipop and several other picture books
