Tara Jayakar is a keen editor, capable of realizing the artistic needs of her writers and gifted at sharpening the writing so that the work always feels improved rather than remade.

For those considering the services Raptor Editing provides, trust that you’ll be in wise counsel and that the values of this mighty press are guided by a strong commitment to writing and writers.”

-Cody Ross Romero, Poet & Raptor Author


“Tara did an excellent job editing my book, and I recommend her and her fastidious eye for detail without hesitation. After Tara’s final edit, I felt confident sending my book out into the world!”
