Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $17

Hello! I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader residing in Indianapolis, Indiana. I worked in the newspaper business for thirteen years as both an editor and a writer, and I have been working with self-publishing authors for the past two. I am fluent in both AP Style and the Chicago Manual of Style (15th and 16th), and am comfortable with both British and US English. I am willing to take on any genre in both fiction and nonfiction, and I am happy to help college and grad students with a thorough line edit of papers and dissertations.

Service Description

Editing services can range from a grammatical/typographical proofreading to a more thorough edit that includes plot lines, characterization, or the presentation and organization of ideas, depending on the manuscript. I can edit a document to comply with AP Style or the Chicago Manual of Style (15th and 16th). I also have experience editing transcripts of conference calls for businesses and writing press releases and media kits.
