Service Description

I am a professional copy editor/editor. Since 2009, I have worked with various genres including computer, archaeological, medical, and personal documents. My core strength is my ability to substantively edit, copy edit, and proof content, dig into its structure, and provide feedback. I do two levels of editing, proofing and copy editing, and am happy to work with you through revisions.

My experience helping others goes back to 2003 with various writing workshop courses for fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and technical writing. During and after I graduated with my degrees, I tutored students in composition, worked for an archaeological publications office as an Assistant Editor, and was a Technical Writer for a medical education company, and I currently edit auditor reports for a research company.

I edit using Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature, and then return an edited attachment in a follow-up email, or I can print an attachment and return the edit to you by post. Just be sure I have the content you want me to work with. Turnaround is dependent on length and complexity. I invoice to email using PayPal.

RATE: My hourly rate is $25; OR, my rate is 2 cents per word for proofing, or 3 cents per word with copy editing to include notes, feedback, and a brief review.

PROOFING: Spelling, punctuation, and other errors. This level cleans up distractions so readers can actually appreciate what you wrote.

COPY EDITING: Proofreading, and issues are noted (e.g., inconsistency,...
