Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

I am a copy editor/proofreader/fact-checker/writer/designer with 20+ years of daily print journalism experience, more than 10 years of freelance experience, a full understanding of and appreciation for even the tightest of deadlines, a strong work ethic and a desire to always do my best work. I work hard to exceed my clients' expectations, both as a matter of self-respect and in hopes that they will return to me with future work and recommend my services to others.

Service Description

I work when you need me.

I primarily rely on e-mail to receive documents, usually in Word or Adobe Acrobat format, that I proof for grammar, punctuation, spelling, consistency and accuracy. I suggest alternate wording when applicable. I use Word's track-change feature and Acrobat's "sticky notes" to indicate my recommendations without making permanent changes to the document. The document is then returned to my client, who determines which recommendations to accept and which to decline -- a valuable feature that allows my clients to decide when a document-specific style trumps AP style and when AP style wins.

AP style is my go-to style, but I am willing and able to follow my clients' preferred style, including in-house styles.

I charge only for time worked. If I estimate a job will take 12 hours and it takes 10, I charge for 10 hours. If I estimate a job will take 12 hours and it takes 14, I still only charge for 12. I also don't charge for coffee breaks, lunch breaks or time spent chatting with co-workers.

Give me a chance and your editing, proofing and writing needs will be satified.
