Service Description

I provide reliable and accurate proofreading, copy editing, and writing services. I have used The Associated Press Stylebook for newspaper and client editing, and I have used The Chicago Manual of Style for independent chapbooks. I also have experience with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, as well as in-house style guides. I will reference and write and edit based on the publication requirements for each individual manuscript.

While my primary focus is editing, I also love to write. With my background in journalism and public relations, I have written all pieces for media kits, and I have provided copy writing services for individual clients. Because of my editing background, I always provide a clean and professional copy for all of my clients.

I have a great eye for detail, and I love what I do. I love helping writers maintain their voice and style while maintaining the integrity of the writing, and I love writing copy for clients. My goal is always to work one-on-one with my clients to provide the quality services they require and have come to expect.
