Service Description

I would be happy to help you with the following types of project! For any client, I will listen to your needs and requirements before getting started, communicate with you continually about your project (including responding to messages within 24 hours), and keep working until you're happy with the final result.

Proofreading: I will go through your document twice to ensure a flawless final product. I have hundreds of hours of proofreading experience and can work quickly, while catching errors most proofreaders would miss.

Substantive editing: I can read through your document and make suggestions for clarity, flow, word choice, organization and style. My changes can turn a wordy, dense or vague manuscript into something that excites and compels readers. I typically work in MS Word Track Changes and submit my edits to the client for feedback before doing a final proofread.

Academic editing: I can make your document more readable and compelling, no matter what your field. I've worked with scholars in fields including chemical engineering, biology, psychology, anthropology, history, philosophy, education, women's studies and literature, including many scholars who speak English as a second language. I'm experienced with MLA, APA, ACA and other citation styles.

Ghostwriting: I will turn your notes, outline or draft into a detailed, cohesive work in your desired style. I have ghostwritten ebooks on topics including marketing, fitness and cyber security, helping...
