Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

Service Description

Services I offer include copyediting, proofreading, line editing, or any combination thereof. I will also help establish a style if it is needed and/or requested by my clients, especially if it is the first in a journal or book series. If there is an established style, I ask that a PDF of the style guidelines are emailed to me along with the manuscript. Currently, I do not accept manuscripts as PDFs. I work in Microsoft Word 2011 and use the track changes tool to make edits. In addition, I prefer manuscripts to be sent as a single file rather than each chapter or article as a separate document.
