Service Description

I am a writer and editor with both a BA and MA in English. I specialize in writing, proofreading and editing.

I feel passionate about the written word, and it has been the focus of my education and outside interests. Whether studying literary criticism, editing news stories and essays, teaching composition, or interviewing published authors on the radio show I hosted, I feel like I've covered a lot of literary ground!

I can offer you accuracy and attention to detail backed up by my years of formal study in writing and editing the English language. I guarantee a quick turnaround time, adjusted to fit the scope of your project. For editing and proofreading projects, I perform all proofreading and editing comments using the track changes function in Microsoft Word unless otherwise specified.
