Service Description

I currently work as editor for Vents Magazine, and I'm a staff writer for World Record Label. I have also been published by crossfadr.com, Cute Copy, and Europe Boss, in addtion to many ghostwriting jobs.

I have experience with biographies, fiction, blogs, summaries, and magazine articles, among other things. I am also skilled in translation between German, English, and French, as well as transcription. Rates for these can be negotiated between myself and the client.

I provide three basic levels of editing, which can be combined or tailored to fit your needs:
- generalized feedback
- detailed edits for grammar, spelling, and syntax
- full substantive edits with comments on plot development, organization of topics, and other larger issues (in addition to copy edits)

I can use Track Changes, side comments, or in-text comments, or I can insert my edits directly into the document.

As a Canadian, I can comfortably switch between American and British English.
