I have edited two accreditation self-study documents (National Association of Schools of Music) at the college level, and one at the high school level.

Service Description

I can provide valuable service to you in copy editing any documents or articles for consistency of formatting, word choice, usage, clarity, and documentation.

Because of my educational background and academic employment, I have strengths in writing articles, essays, blogs that conform to a more formal, academic style. However, I am equally comfortable writing blogs or articles in a more conversational, less formal style.

I provide a regular blog feed for my students and parents, providing information of upcoming events and information of note on my classroom website. Examples of this more formal, detail oriented blog writing are available at olathesouthchoirs.weebly.com.

I maintain a blog of creative non-fiction essays, book reviews, and reflections on current events that illustrate this style (ladycinzia.blogspot.com) and samples are available for immediate review in my portfolio.
