In five years of experience as an editor, I've had the joy of working with a large variety of documents: magazines, business plans and reports, graduate school application essays, academic essays, web content, news stories, blog articles, non-fiction and fiction manuscripts, cookbooks, dining guides, college theses, a poetry anthology, short stories, and a PhD dissertation.
My editing style is holistic, meaning that I'll do whatever it takes to get the text 100% ready for readers. Depending on the needs of the job, I can accurately proofread, lightly edit, or provide full mark-ups with comments and suggestions. Open communication ensures that the final result always reflects the writer's message and personal style.
I recognize that an editor's job is often more than fixing surface errors. As a developmental and substantive editor for essays and for longer texts, my collaborative editing process can teach writers to think more critically about their own use of language and organization of ideas.
Dominique was great to work with. She was very helpful not only in editing my writing, but also in brainstorming new ideas to improve my essays. I would definitely recommend Dominique to anyone looking for help with editing or writing. Response from editing application essays to Duke's MBA program
