Service Description

New to Elance.com but not to freelancing

Available for short-term project right now only.

Editing -
I have edited white papers, blogs, book manuscripts, academic papers, resumes, legal memoranda, press releases, automotive pieces, and much more, from the highly technical to the poetic. I was also previously the Managing Editor of a social science academic journal.

Writing -
I have published prose, travel essays, and social science articles. I have written research for the financial sector, East Asia & China, anthropology, cognitive science, and political science topics.
Recent (2014) verbal and writing GRE scores in the top 7th percentile (93rd percentile).

I am unquestionably reliable with rush jobs. References available.

Currently working as the developmental editor and writing coach for a first-time book author; developmental editor for a spiritual practice book; copyeditor for a manuscript on global women's rights & democracy; and I am helping an applicant prepare her graduate school applications. I am also the regular copyeditor for a prolific social sciences academician.

Pro Bono -
I offer pro bono services on a case-by-case basis, generally for nonprofits and social justice organizations.
