Service Description

COPY EDITING
I offer detailed, precision editing. I've got a light touch and believe in staying true to an author's original style and intent. The finishing-touch services I provide are generally grammatical, mechanical, and to a lesser degree, stylistic. Each project is different, but my goal is always to meet your unique editing needs with speed and grace. I have considerable experience with MLA, APA and AP style guides, and I am SEO, keyword proficient.

MORE ON COPY EDITING
I can be a grammar stickler when it's required, but I'm also keenly aware that an overzealous touch can suck the life out of spirited writing. I value the client-provider relationship, and I am eager to listen to your particular needs. I always aim to over-deliver. I'll treat your work like the precious gem it is, and I'll do my best to beat the turnaround time we agree upon.


WRITING
I've got a smooth-flowing writing style. I'll make your product or your website shine, and I'll make efficient use of keywords to draw customer traffic. I'll turn your project around with speed, grace and a positive spirit. My hope is that we can work together again and again.
