Overview

I am a meticulous, deadline-conscious editor with a PhD in an interdisciplinary field and experience in online publishing. I'm comfortable working with a variety of media, from blogs to books, presentations to dissertations, but I specialize in editing and formatting graduate-level and academic faculty writing. I have experience proofing for publications in both American and British styles of English and familiarity with several different citation styles, particularly Chicago and APA.

Service Description

My goals are to provide you with a written product you'll be excited to show to your target readers and to do it within your timeframe.

My primary services include:
* Proofreading and editing of academic texts, including graduate-level theses and dissertations, peer-review journal article submissions, and chapters for edited volumes.
* Formatting of dissertations and theses according to graduate school requirements.
* Proofreading, triple-checking, and formatting of citations (author-date, footnotes/endnotes, and reference lists) in the author's preferred style.
* Line-editing for the purpose of strengthening text without compromising the author's voice.
* Line-editing the writing of non-native English speakers writing for an English-language audience or thesis/dissertation committee.

I also have experience in:
* Proofreading and copyediting/line-editing business documents, such as white papers.
* Helping prospective college and university applicants in preparing application materials by proofreading and providing feedback on statements of purpose and other components.
* Proofreading and copyediting blogs and articles for popular periodicals.
* Trivia writing.
* Constructing style guides.
* Proofreading and copyediting technical writing.

I also have a slightly embarrassing compulsion to edit Wikipedia entries solely to clean up spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.
