Overview

I have a Master's Degree in Writing and have studied a wide variety of genres including professional/technical writing, nonfiction, fiction, and composition. By studying such a range of genres, I have a solid understanding about how different types of writing function which has given me the ability to edit them properly. I have an eye for detail that allows me to edit for voice, clarity, grammar, uniformity, etc. I finish jobs promptly while still giving every piece I edit the time and attention needed to complete the job thoroughly.
