Service Description

I am able to lend my editing skills (which are both natural and professionally-developed) to any of the three parts of the editing process: Content Editing, Proofreading, and/or Publish-Ready Editing. I can also help to develop waning ideas. My hourly rate may go up if a project requires more detail-intensive work. Also, I will request credit as an editor for any work that is to be published - in print or online.
