Service Description

I offer two levels of editing: the straightforward detection and correction of mistakes and inconsistencies (proofreading), and the suggestion of further changes that will improve flow and overall quality (copy-editing). I'm proficient in the use of proof-correction marks on hard copy and equally skilled in on-screen editing techniques.
