Service Description

Depending on your needs, I can help with simple proofreading—just making sure your spelling, punctuation, and basic grammar are sound—or I can do more comprehensive editing, clarifying ideas and improving the rhythm and flow of the writing itself. The extent of my involvement is, of course, entirely up to you, and I won't make changes that would compromise the writer's unique voice.
