Service Description

I do basic proofreading, copy editing, and substantive (developmental) editing for novels, blogs, essays, articles, web content, resumes/CVs, and more. I expect good communication with the client in case there are things the client needs to change or rewrite based on my suggestions.
I am extremely meticulous and detail oriented. I love literature, and I have an eye for what is good writing and what is not, so I can transform the bad into the better! I have been editing for fun for years and freelancing for about a year. I completed an internship with a publishing company, and edited SEO content for About.com for a short time as well. I have received 100% positive feedback from all of my clients and employers so far. You will not be disappointed with my work!
