I highly recommend KPrevallet's manuscript services. K provided clarity and order that allowed my poems to unfold in a sequence that I hadn't considered before. There are not many people who I trust to edit a manuscript in progress, that takes an ally with patience and gentleness to help a poet at this vulnerable stage, especially  in the field of  experimental poetry, but you can trust Kristin, an astute editor and brilliant poet, to have the best interests of your work in mind.
