Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $30

My passion for the written word means I'm a proofreader/copy editor with a sharp eye for even the tiniest error, and a well-honed ear for English grammar. I've got the experience to take writing from draft to publication. I specialize in books and manuals, but have experience with shorter forms as well.

Service Description

I have over twenty years of experience in typesetting and graphic design for the print industry. This involved a great deal of proofreading, of course. I have designed several books with typography, photo placement, and indexing. I created the overall design for the technical manuals and forms of a charter airline. I've often been commended for my speed and accuracy.

I'm also a long-time writer. I've written instruction manuals, magazine articles, award-winning fiction, blogs, and more.

Experienced in Microsoft Word, and page layout with Adobe Creative Suite.
