I provide thorough service in proofreading, copy editing, and fact checking and transcription geared toward many disciplines. I can turn your copy into a compelling piece of literature.
Proofreading - Correct typographical and mechanical errors while eliminating obvious grammatical errors.
Copyediting - Line editing for the correction of errors in spelling, grammar, usage and style. I also correct obvious errors of fact and ensure factual consistency.
Heavy copyediting - Copyediting, in addition to a thorough vetting of all facts and research. If desired, I also suggest more extensive content edits, including tightening up prose and smoothing out transitions.
I understand that editing isn't always simply working out the kinks of mechanical and grammatical errors -- outstanding copy can require a more developmental approach with thorough suggestions and queries. My work reflects the firm understanding that each individual is capable of producing high quality copy, be it a blog, journal submission, graduate application, or full-length manuscript.
