Experienced non-fiction, fiction and technical writer.
Hi - I am Janice L., proofreader and writer/editor. Proofreading is my innate talent that made its debut more than 20 years ago when my then-husband, screen writer and filmmaker, swung his numerous feature film scripts my way before submitting them to producers. Since that time, I have solidified my expertise with a formal qualification - a BA in English with a minor in Journalism - and spent time as an editorial intern with a book publisher in the Dallas area. There, I analyzed manuscripts for first-time authors (fiction and non-fiction), penned jacket notes and performed final proofreads for manuscripts immediately prior to publishing. Errors and typos glare at me - they are constant...in printed matter, websites and elsewhere. I have been a U.S. resident since 1984, hailing originally from London, England.
I consider myself an excellent and experienced writer with an eye for detail. Your work will be polished and error-free and when I'm through with it; I display the same dedication to perfection in my own writings. I am professional and prompt, and guarantee satisfaction.
All born to struggle to have what you want them to have.
Nothing good is ever written, but always RE-written. A $500 word will never go where a $3.75 word would do just fine.

Although my list of references is not huge, I would be more than happy to give you a free sample edit to show you I'm more than capable to assist you in the writing process.

I created Superior Story.com to help writers refine their ideas and perfect their prose. I edit with my clients' intentions and desires for their story in mind and believe in teamwork throughout the editing process to preserve their original ideas. I take pride in my professionalism and am confident that I can provide the editing service you desire.

Hi! I'm a recovering attorney who has written five novels and one novella - a mix of published and self-published. I am in a writing group and love critiquing novels, so I've decided to do more of what I love by freelancing as a manuscript editor. I taught English and Creative Writing at the middle school level for two years early in my career, and as an attorney, my copyediting and proofreading skills have been honed for the last six years. Since I'm an elance newbie, all my work will be at very reasonable rates. I do not do sample edits, as you can't get the picture of a full, substantive critique from just a partial effort. I think you'll find my rates reasonable enough to go forward without a sample.
I have inherited my talents for editing and proofreading, plus spent my high school years in AP English, where writing detailed essays was a weekly part of our instruction (and grade!). As a result, I placed out of 12 hours of English in college, leaving me only one course to complete my credits. I still read at least one book per week, finding books at our local library plus reading my Kindle reader (I'm on my 3rd Kindle, as I tend to wear them out).

Ashley Hothersall Â dog lover, coffee drinker, copywriter. In Kindergarten, my friend and I convinced everyone in our class that tiny pebbles weÂd found on the ground were indeed leprechaun eggs. By the end of the day, everyone was following us around begging to hold them. Soon after, I began putting my stories on paper, which was probably best for all parties. Even as a child, I loved to tell stories and turn the humdrum into something a little more interesting. Now I use my words to evolve brands and help them succeed.

I bring a diverse set of skills to the table. In college, I was a pre-med student/English major. I equally enjoyed my Immunology and Evolution classes as well as my Fiction Writing and Anglophilic Lit classes. I did all the things a pre-med student does (volunteer, research, etc.), but I also took up more unorthodox hobbies, such as DJ-ing at a radio station. During my senior year of college, I was the co-chair of a student-run event that raised $40,000 for building schools and water wells in rural China. Since graduating, I have worked at a Walmart pharmacy, as a substitute teacher at my old high school, and as an MCAT instructor with Kaplan; I've started my own essay-editing service as well as my own band; I received admittance to UT Southwestern medical school; I took a community college painting class; I traveled the world with my brother; and I attended the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop, a program that has produced 17 Pulitzer prizewinners.
