Prompt and Friendly Communication.
All Services Strictly Confidential.
Life comes at us fast, so I specialize in fast-turnaround editing and proofreading. I work on a variety of projects: book manuscripts, presentation decks, business reports and white papers, academic essays and dissertations, resumes, websites and articles. When you’re not in a rush, take advantage of lower regular rates.
What’s the difference between developmental editing, copy editing, and proofreading? Read about these services below to understand what suits your needs.
Clean and Correct
Proofreading is the process of identifying and correcting errors of spelling, grammar, usage, and punctuation. I’ll correct errors that may be missed by even the best proofreading software! If the work is already formatted, I’ll also call out any formatting issues. This service is perfect for work that’s already been edited or carefully read, and it’s also perfect for resumes and other business documents.
Professional and Polished
Copy edits give your writing a clearer and more elegant style. I’ll go through your work line by line to correct unclear sentences, jarring transitions, disorganized information, unneeded repetition, overused words, pronoun issues, grammar and syntax errors, and more, plus make suggestions as needed for corrections. My copy editing includes proofreading.
Creative and Compelling
Developmental edits, otherwise known as content edits or story edits, pertain to fiction, screenplays, and narrative nonfiction such as memoirs. I’ll provide detailed feedback on plot elements, character development, point of view, pacing, showing vs. telling, dialogue, description, and continuity.
Why Do People Need Rush Editing and Proofreading?
There are many different reasons! An author or publisher may need to hit a publication date to avoid being penalized by Amazon. An investment banking analyst may be finishing a pitch deck for an important client. A job hunter applying for a dream job may need to make sure a resume is error-free.
Why Are Editing and Proofreading So Important?
Errors, grammar issues, and awkward sentences leave the impression of sloppiness and neglect, and they detract from the message you’re trying to convey or the story you’re trying to tell. For fiction writers and storytellers, an excellent editor can help your creative work shine. Simply put, a professional proofreader or editor gives you the appearance of someone who strives for excellence.
