Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $27

I have taught university-level technical and business writing, creative writing, and literature over the last 15 years.

Service Description

Editing only. Academic editing. Fiction and nonfiction editing. I am not a ghostwriter. I rarely write content from scratch, and therefore am unavailable to write web content, SEO-type articles, Croatian-language manuals on Antarctic exploration, etc. Though that Croatian thing actually sounds kind of interesting, come to think of it.

Top 5% in Elance test scores: English, editing, grammar, spelling, creative writing. (Visible on my profile page.)
