Whether you are looking for a quick proofread or need help with flow, organization, and readability, I can assist you in ensuring your writing is sharp and effective. With more than 13 years of experience editing, many of those while I was also working full time as a writer in marketing and B2B and B2C communications, I have the expertise to hone any academic, advertising, marketing, or personal copy you provide. Examples include dissertations, theses, personal statements, letters of recommendation, college application essays, brochures, catalogs, and mailers, among many others.I provide all edits clearly labeled, with thorough explanations and descriptions. Unless advised otherwise, I will also include suggestions on reorganization or point out anything unclear or that could be expanded upon to more clearly emphasize your objective. Much of my editing work has been assisting those who speak English as a second language (ESL). Thus, I am especially adept at combining attention to detail with a focus on overall messaging, which is particularly relevant for editing content from ESL writers.
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!
