Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

As the name implies, I am obsessive about grammar, but it doesn't end there. The same goes for spelling, punctuation, usage, tense, flow . . . well, you get the idea!

I am a lover of books and a voracious reader. I seem to have always been able to spot the misspelled word, awkward sentence, or missplaced comma in whatever I was reading.

Service Description

Hello! I'm Anita Norris, and I am Grammar Fixation. I have always loved to read, and I appreciate a really well-written book. Errors in whatever I'm reading just seem to leap off the page at me. I learned to read and write the old-fashioned way, before OMG, LOL, and BFF. I believe that well-chosen words, correct spelling, and proper punctuation are still important, though it is not everyone's strong suit. That's where, as a proofreader/copyeditor, I can be of help.


I can do as much or as little to your writing as you require or request. Maybe simple proofreading (for grammar, punctuation, spelling) is all that is called for. Or maybe you need help with sequencing text in a logical manner, getting sentences to flow smoothly, or making dialogue read more naturally. I can provide any or all of these services. I strive for the highest degree of integrity, and will always respect the confidentiality and proprietary nature of any material entrusted to me.

Available Services:

* Proofreading for grammar, spelling, and punctuation
* Help with content, consistency, structure
