Service Description

I'll proofread, copy-edit and fine-tune your document for grammar, correctness and overall readability! Whether it's a blog, article or press release - I will deliver. I am meticulous with detail and prioritize my work to meet reasonable deadlines. Courses in copy-editing and proofreading through Universal Class are my starting-point credentials and nearly 10 years of hands-on experience has helped me hone my skills.

Resumes and Cover letters
If you need a resume, I will construct an impressive one including cover letter and provide suggested wording customized to your industry. If you need a hand with essays or term papers I will proofread and edit to suit your voice and subject. Writing for children and teenagers is also one of my passions and I studied with the Institute of Children's Literature to gain credibility.

Website Copy
Nine years with the NBC Universal community pages and two years as author of Gardening in Canada has given me excellent experience in writing, proofreading and editing website copy.
