Casey Patrick

Poet | Editor | Teaching Artist

I offer editorial services, including copyediting and proofreading for poetry, nonfiction, and fiction. I also offer line editing for poetry manuscripts and individual poems, as well as consultations to help writers create a submission strategy. I generally charge industry-standard rates, but I'm happy to work with you based on your budget. If you're interested in working with me on a project, please be in touch using the contact form.

I've worked as copy editor for literary journals, including Willow Springs and Sundog Lit, and have worked on editorial projects for Milkweed Editions, Coffee House Press, and Hub City Press. I have experience reading general manuscript submissions and I’ve been a reader for the Ballard Spahr Prize for Poetry (formerly the Lindquist & Vennum Prize) at Milkweed Editions, Hub City Press's New Southern Voices Poetry Prize, and the Janet McCabe Poetry Prize from Ruminate Magazine.
