Grace Perri Barnes is a developmental editor, book doctor, and copyeditor who works with publishers, agents, and other literary firms, as well as individual clients ranging from debut novelists to Pulitzer-winning journalists. Recent projects include an instant #1 New York Times bestseller.
Currently, Grace works as both an independent editor and in an ongoing, project-based capacity with a boutique literary PR firm that contracts with the Big Five and award-winning indies.
As an editor, Grace specializes in literary fiction and engaging nonfiction. She particularly enjoys working on standout novels of all sorts; short stories and story collections; narrative nonfiction; cultural criticism; literary memoir; political projects, journalism, biography, and history with a literary bent or creative angle; and essays. She is also drawn to work that resists categorization or straddles genres.
Grace is accepting new clients for June 2021 onward. Information for authors interested in discussing editorial services can be found on Grace's Authors Guild Marketplace listings.
