I offer proofreading, copyediting, and substantive editing services. Whichever is the right choice for you will depend on the state of your piece of writing; below are brief descriptions of what each service entails. If you have any questions about these services, please feel free to contact me.
Fine details and last look
Your project has been edited and formatted; now it needs a final proofread. Whether it’s a book, website, blog, or newsletter, I will look over it with a fine-tooth comb to notice any glaring errors or issues with formatting. This is the final stage before launching your project to the world—let’s make it perfect!
Getting into the nitty-gritty
You’ve completed your manuscript and need someone to read through your work for spelling, grammar, syntax, and style choices. I will study your words in painstaking detail to discover any errors or inconsistencies in stylistic preference that may distract readers from your message. Prices for copyediting will vary based on the level of editing required for the project.
Tightening up your story
You have the first or second draft of your manuscript complete, but some pieces aren’t quite lining up. Substantive editing can help you identify and resolve problems of clarity and flow in your story. I will work with you to call out and fix potential issues with content, accuracy, consistency, and organization in order to sharpen your message.
