Service Description

I offer proofreading services to clients who are happy with the quality of writing and simply require the identification and correction of spelling, grammatical, and typographical errors.

I also provide a comprehensive editing service. In addition to correcting spelling, grammatical, and typographical errors, this service aims to improve the quality of writing by focusing on word choice and sentence structure and also by considering tone, redundancy, and argument strength.

As a freelancer, I regularly complete editing and proofreading contracts for corporate clients. I have also worked as an in-house editor for a professional editing and proofreading service and as an in-house writer/editor responsible for perfecting course curriculum at a Canadian college.

Although I primarily market my editing and proofreading services, I do have experience writing copy, as well. I particularly enjoy writing copy for promotional purposes and have extensive experience in news writing. I have a long-standing relationship with a particular corporate client as their press release and web copy writer.
