I am an experienced editor who appreciates precision and deadlines. I edit academic papers, dissertations, manuscripts, journal articles, and a variety of business applications like resumes, white papers, and press releases. I really enjoy helping other writers to polish and to perfect a piece of their writing.
Happy to do a free sample edit.
Some examples of recently completed work: (1) an economics article for publication, (2) a nonfiction novel about leadership for small business owners, and (3) a fiction novel about mermaids.
When editing a given work, I take both copyediting and proofreading into consideration. My expertise is US English, but I can work in UK English as well. I am well versed in CMOS, MLA, and APA. Alternatively, I can follow an in-house style guide as long as you provide it (or a link to it). I have working knowledge of AP Style. I follow the "Five Cs" when editing and will always strive to make your work as clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent as possible.
My aim is to enhance your writing in order to capture your target audience's attention. I take my work very seriously and put my all into producing a high-quality end product. I read, write, and edit material every day and look forward to any opportunity I get to help others.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Happy writing!
