Service Description

I'm an editor with over 10 years of experience editing reports, dissertations, books (fiction and non-fiction), journal articles, webpages, and more. I specialize in the humanities and social sciences, and I have a master's degree in applied anthropology.

Depending on your needs, I can provide a simple copyedit for style and grammar issues, or I can help you examine the entire document for overall flow and organization.

Just let me know the level of edit you require, and I will work with you to make your document the best it can be.

I am expert in Chicago, APA, and GPO styles, as well as many smaller journal styles, and I can edit documents of any size, from journal articles to dissertations and novels.

I use Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature, so you control which of my edits are incorporated and which are not. This makes it easy for you to see what I've done.
