Service Description

Ready to join a team, but currently a solo project...

I am a meticulous and very serious editor. It is the job I enjoy most and do best.

I can do various levels of editing:

Standard Proofreading - checking for grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors

Standard Editing - standard proofreading plus assisting with style, flow, and idiom

Copyediting - standard editing plus checking for factual accuracy of content and references

I also enjoy various writing challenges, but am very particular about the ones I bid on.
