I was an English major at a liberal arts college and have done
post-graduate work in publishing and editing. I have worked as a peer
writing tutor on countless papers, and am currently employed as a
production assistant where my main tasks involve proofreading and
quality assurance of manuscripts. I know the basics of all citation
styles and always have a copy of the Chicago Manual of Style (16th
edition) on hand.
Copy edit: I will restructure sentences to avoid word repetition or clarify syntax and correct spelling/grammar.
Proofreading: I will fix egregious mistakes, such as misspelled words or incorrect tense usage, and perform a light edit. I will not change your language or sentence style.
Clean-up: I will reformat a document to your specifications, create/fix notes, and alphabetize a bibliography.
Please order an additional gig for every 1,000 words you would like me to edit after the
first 1,000. For example, if you have 2,300 words you would like me to
proofread, please order 3 gigs total.
If your writing is over 8,000 words, please check with me first so we can confirm a time frame!
