Service Description

A writing, proofreading and editing service that offers a high attention to detail and a versatile style. I have proof-editing experience in a wide spectrum of styles, genres, and formats and can personalize my service to meet your specific needs.

I strive to provide constructive feedback and suggestions to make writing stronger, with the goal of giving my clients a fresh perspective on their work so that they can learn and grow in the process.

Whether you are an author, student, corporation, or professional, I offer a detailed service and a friendly approach that covers all of your editing needs.
