Service Description

I will write, proofread, and edit academic papers, articles, short non-fiction pieces, short stories, and novels.

I have written hundreds of academic papers (both for my own coursework and as an employee for essay-writing services). I am familiar with most major citation styles, like MLA, APA, and Turabian.

As a freelance editor, I helped one ESL art graduate student complete her degree by proofreading and editing her thesis and dissertation, in addition to presentations and employment letters.

I have written, edited, and published articles on various content sites. I've written short fiction and long. One of my flash fiction stories won an Editor's Choice award on Faithwriters.com and was published in a compilation. I edited and self-published my first novel on Lulu.com
