Service Description

I can offer you or your business proofreading, editing, and writing services on any number of projects.

I am highly skilled at changing the tone of my writing to suit the genre required--whether that is academic, formal business, or more colloquial. I have extensive academic experience with research, editing, and revision.

I have produced training and technical manuals in the past, and am very comfortable with that type of writing. I pride myself on my ability to take complicated ideas and make them straightforward and easy to understand.

I am also comfortable writing more creative pieces, and can apply a fresh and creative perspective to copywriting or web content projects.
