If you need a developmental editor, I can help!

I have seven years of experience developmentally editing creative nonfiction essays, short stories, poems, and book manuscripts (memoir and contemporary fiction are my favorite).

I can help you to bring the heart of your story to life through in-depth critique looking at character, setting, pacing, suspense, and structure.

As a new freelancer, I’m looking to prove myself in the industry.  For $20/hr and a testimonial, I can take your writing to the next level.

If you would like to learn more about my services, please contact me and we can discuss how I can help you!


It is with great pleasure that I recommend Nicole Allum as an editor/writing coach for your writing project. When I first connected with Nicole, my memoir, Our Better Selves was a mere thought about a conflict I experienced almost a decade ago when my emotionally abusive husband was diagnosed with cancer. Nicole provided valuable insight into the development of this work, offering more than just writing advice. Her insight into the subject of abuse and the impact on those who remain in the shadows was powerful and gave me the confidence to tell my story. Each step of the way, she made suggestions on how to improve the work without an ounce of negative criticism. I am by far a better writer because of my experience of working with Nicole.
