Daniel Gillis

Editing and proofreading expert - UK and US
   Canada

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

With many years of copy-writing for newspapers and journals under my belt, I have gained a great deal of experience in editing and proofreading. The quality of my work speaks for itself, as I pay great attention to detail.

To me, perfect grammar, punctuation, and spelling are essential, but I also work hard to maintain the author's original style and voice. In the end, I will provide you with a document that is readable, flowing and interesting to the reader.

I do not outsource any projects.
