Proofreader/Copy Editor

Highly experienced copy editor with an English degree in Writing and Small Press Publishing for hire for a variety of projects. Trained in MLA, APA, Chicago, and AP styles. I spent two years working as a full-time copy editor of Science/Tech/Media/Culture articles for a publication, and have edited several dissertations for Ph.D. students on the side. I'm currently editing a few novels, as well as personal essays for students applying to graduate school. I'm also working as a freelance copy editor for a popular parenting website. In addition, I am a contributing writer for a well-known travel/culture website. Previously, I worked at a prominent university for four years, editing scientific papers.

I love to edit fiction in the form of short stories, novels, and poetry. I'm also eager to edit dissertations, theses, essays, or other educational coursework. Rates vary based on project type, what kind of edits you need (light proofreading, formatting, or deep edits), and length of the project.

The most important part of copy editing, to me, is that I both understand and keep the integrity of what the writer is trying to express, while cleaning up grammatical and spelling errors and tweaking words to make the writing flow. I want the writers I work with to be successful and to sound absolutely brilliant, and I love helping them get there.

Please reply here to get in touch with me to discuss your project, and I can help you determine rates and the type of editing you may need. If you'd like to see my resume and references, I'd be happy to provide those. I will send my website along in my reply so you can read more about me, including the specifics of those vaguely-mentioned sites above :)

I'm excited to read what you've got!
