Service Description

EDITING/PROOFREADING
Why let your work become less credible simply because of spelling errors, grammatical problems, and other silly mistakes?

I can proofread or edit your work, regardless of the type of project. I can edit for punctuation, style, sentence structure, or grammar. If you need help with voice or flow, I can do it. I can also edit fictional pieces for plot, style, genre structure, etc. In the past, I have been responsible for editing dissertations of various topics, a master's thesis on Korean history, and over 30 undergraduate papers. I have also edited an introduction to a book written by an English professor at Indiana University and have consulted with various faculty members on journal article content. As for fiction, I have edited 5 young adult novels, one of which recently entered into the publishing process.

WRITING
Good writing is hard to find and it simply is the most important factor in developing successful stories, novels, web content, academic essays, etc.

When you need a writer to piece together your research or story, I can help. I have written multiple graduate-level papers and articles during my time in Indiana University's English program. I have worked as a content writer for two years and am now breaking into writing freelance magazine articles.

I am also versed in storytelling and narrative, and have studied fiction and nonfiction works, both by native and non-native English speakers. I write creatively, and am currently working...
