Elegant and Precise Copy Editing and Proofreading
   France
  |  11:39 pm Local Time

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $18

It is my pleasure to ensure that I leave my clients with a clear, well-written and engaging product, whether that be a work of fiction or non-fiction, hard copy or website.

My clients enjoy working with me due to my good nature and my efficient and speedy delivery. As a widely published poet, I am able to grasp and enhance the desired tone of a piece while keeping an eagle eye out for grammatical errors.

You should give me a try! It'll be a good experience for both of us.
