Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $20

I offer fast, affordable, thorough proofreading and editing.

Many people lack confidence in their spelling and grammar skills. This is no wonder given the vast range of written genres and the different stylistic demands they place on the author. But never fear! If you have the words, I can help you polish them to a brilliant shine. I have the proofreading and editing skills to make your prose expressive, impressive, and sure to dazzle any reader.
