Wordcraft Midwife

Editing ~ Writer support ~ Proofreading


I bring my skill and guidance as a literary midwife to writers, helping them bring their written word to life so their unique voices shine through. I make the editing process cozy and intimate, like having a fireside chat with your best friend. Plenty of warmth, companionship, encouragement, engaging conversations, and steadfast support.

I know you've poured your heart and soul into your work. So will I.

Hello, I'm Candace Palmo. 


People come to me when their writing needs the care and attention of another pair of skillful eyes. In addition to being an editor and writer, the other roles I have played in my life (midwife, hospice nurse, grandmother, farmer, world traveler, Buddhist—to name a few) have provided an unending stream of experiences to draw from as I assist others in giving birth to their voices and authorship.

Did I mention I'm in my 70s? I tell you this in case you're one of these people who wonder if they're too old to write or if they've missed the window. You're not. And you didn't. The world needs your words and your wisdom, and there is no expiration date on that.

I look forward to working with you!
