Editing

Copy editing and proofreading

As an academic copy editor, I work with high school and university students and professors to improve their grant or school applications, project proposals, essays, papers, theses, dissertations, journal articles, book chapters and reports.

As a non-fiction copy editor, I help authors get their books ready to submit for publication, from the rewriting stages at the beginning to the final stages of proofreading and formatting. I specialize in non-fiction articles and books, memoirs, guides, how-to, and technical reports.

Although it is always ideal to have someone else read your work, it is not always possible due to time and other constraints. My objective is that my clients and students become aware of the issues I point out and learn how to deal with them on their own, so that eventually they can edit their own work without external help.

 

What cand I do for you?

Structural Editing:  Reorganize a manuscript to improve clarity in content and structure.

Copy & Stylistic Editing:  Correct grammatical errors, word usage, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure. Check the internal consistency of facts, look to clarify meaning, eliminate jargon, polish the language, and do other non-mechanical editing.

Proofreading:  Check text for minor, mechanical errors, such as spelling mistakes, typos, or small deviations from a style.
