I will edit your text for vocabulary, sentence structure, punctuation, grammar, agreement, consistency, and logic. I have experience in and am available for all types of written and digital text, including newsletters, advertising copy, menus, fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, journals and magazine articles, corporate documents or resumes, academic papers, websites, and work by writers for whom English is a second language.
Proofreading is the last stage in the editing process and should be performed when your text is nearly ready for publishing. The process involves a final read-through of your work, with a critical look at previous decisions on punctuation, grammar, and word choice, as well as text alignment, word division, line breaks and page breaks, citations, header and footer formatting, and general page appearance. My eight years of experience in proofreading in a range of subject areas and publishing genres has garnered me a reputation as a meticulous, efficient, and professional proofreader.
