Service Description

I work with Track Changes in MS Word or Google Drive, or proofing marks in Adobe Acrobat. Any other method suggested by the client is fine too.

In terms of style guidelines, I can adapt to the standard guides (Chicago, AP, MLA) or use client specifications.

I am flexible when it comes to client communication: I can check in with the client often or work independently and figure things out on my own--just let me know what you prefer.

Contact me to discuss rates.
