Welcome to Reform School. We are Angela and Jordana Berliner, a writer and editor twin sister team who have combined our expertise to help you take your storytelling to the next level.

Fiction Copyediting

My name is Jordana. I’m a certified copyeditor who loves to work with new and seasoned book authors. A copyedit enhances the storytelling of your novel by making the language clear and more enjoyable for the reader while honoring your unique voice. 

I correct issues with grammar, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and hyphenation. I finesse language that is redundant, inconsistent, confusing, or unnecessary. Story and dialogue issues are queried. Does your sixteenth-century English grandmother sound like a skateboarder from Venice Beach? I’ll nudge you in the right direction.

Script Consultations for Television, Film, and Stage

My name is Angela Berliner. I’m a nationally produced playwright and writing consultant for television, film, and stage. I will carefully read your script then provide written feedback to help you learn what’s working, what’s not working, and what I think your next steps are in the revision process.
