Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $15

A recent graduate of The University of Michigan, where I won fellowships and awards for my Academic and Creative Writing, I am an excellent writer, editor and proofreader of all types of fiction and nonfiction. I also specialize in French-to-English translation. My goal is to deliver you clever, professional prose and sharp, detail-oriented proofing/editing. I have a quick turnaround time and an anal attention to detail and accuracy bred from years of pouring over English essays and taking red pens to my textbooks.

Service Description

While my BA was in English Language and Literature, I am also well-versed in French, history, art history, and the social sciences. A few of my academic subspecializations include Victorian Literature, Children's Literature, Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy. I am also familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago Manual of Style guidelines.

Turnaround time is naturally dependent upon the size and scope of the project, but I am used to working under tight deadlines and your project will always be completed in a timely and professional manner with attention paid to your specifications.

I can point out issues regarding punctuation, spelling, grammar, syntax, and diction and can rewrite/improve content and style as desired by the client.

I also offer services in French-to-English translation. I have done volunteer translation work for Coursera.org, providing video lectures (in both English and French) with English and French subtitles, respectively.
