Service Description

I am a full-time professional copy editor with over 11 years of experience. I am a skilled proofreader as well as an in-depth copy editor, and I have a special talent for reworking text written by non-native English speakers. I am also skilled in page layout using QuarkXPress.

I am an experienced editor and designer but relatively new to elance. I'm looking for clients with whom I can develop long-term relationships for contract work. To that end, I'm willing to offer reduced introductory rates on small jobs for new clients. I believe my work will stand on its own once we begin working together.
