Editing


I provide a wide variety of editorial services, including:

  • Copyediting
  • Proofreading
  • Fact-checking
  • Manuscript revision

I’ve done it all—helped writers shape their narratives, offering both big picture comments and line-by-line suggestions; streamlined magazine articles and newsletters; polished Web copy; compiled reports; focused that cover letter or personal statement. Contact me for more information.
