I am looking for a highly skilled proofreader/editor/writer to take some academic content (one Word document) to the next level. The work is already OK as it stands, but it is here where the meticulous editor comes in, irons out any imperfections and makes those words 'manifest'.

The task is basically twofold:
1) a very thorough proofing (spelling, punctuation, grammar, overall flow, readability and coherence)
2) the odd rewrite (if at all necessary) on a content level

The ideal candidate, apart from highly skilled as an editor / proofreader / writer, also possesses in-depth knowledge of English linguistics and/or academic writing.
Please do not apply if you don't meet these demands.

More work guaranteed if this goes well.
