I offer proofreading and copyediting services. I am skilled at reworking writing to achieve greater clarity. My newspaper experience taught me about economy of words and concise communication. My background in English and American literature gives me a firm grip of the language, as well as a love of reading and of good writing.
I welcome jobs in fiction and nonfiction, persuasive or political writing, history and sociology, as well as in many other categories. Given my own study of social and political history, as well as a lifelong background in social activism, I am a good match for political and historical writers.
I have been writing, proofreading and copyediting for most of the past two decades, for individuals and nonprofit organizations. I have experience in editing periodicals, political writing, grant proposals, and promotional materials such as flyers and press releases.
I coordinated a team of proofreaders for an independent newspaper for four years. In addition, I have proofread manuscripts and book proposals.
My references are available, on request.
