Conscientious U.S. proofreader new to eLance but with 12 years of copyediting and proofreading experience. I have edited/proofread countless articles, dissertations, Web pages, resumes, letters, eBooks, as well as a self-published work of fiction. I am also a writer; I've helped co-write a fiction novel, and have written many short stories for my own enjoyment. Would love the chance to work with you!

Grammar and spelling ARE important. A misspelled word or a grammatically wrong sentence changes the perception of whomever reads your work....

Service Description

I offer fast, quality work (proofreading/copyediting) for less!

I am new to Elance, but not to proofreading, writing, or editing. I've also been doing creative writing on the side for over 10 years. My love of the written word has been lifelong as I served as Editor-in-Chief of both my highschool and University newspapers. These days you would find me typing on a keyboard or proofreading my husband's novel. I am also currently proofreading for a living, so I basically eat, drink, and breathe words every day. I do conscientious work, and when editing, try to keep the writer's style and spirit intact.

I also keep in mind the customer's budget. Times are hard, but you do want quality work done, so why not consider my services? I can deliver timely, prodigiously worked-on projects for less. Don't let a misspelled word spell (no pun intended) the difference between acceptance or rejection. Let my conscientiousness work on your behalf.
