Proofreading & Editing

When determining payment, I consider the level of editing required in addition to other factors such as the deadline, length of the text, and type of document, e.g., technical level, textbook, fiction. Note that I am familiar with American, Canadian, and British conventions.

Proofreading

For documents that have been previously edited, I correct errors in spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and formatting.

Copy Editing

I highlight and correct errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar; query inconsistencies in style; eliminate unnecessary repetition; and fact check.

Development Editing

For documents that require more intense editing, I examine the text as a whole and reorganize your presentation, identify gaps in content, and rewrite poorly constructed sentences and paragraphs.

Questions, comments, cup of coffee?

Let’s stay in touch. I’m available for comment, hire or collaboration, and I’d love to hear from you. Send me a note.
