I have 30+ years of professional editing experience that encompasses fiction and nonfiction and spans diverse business interests, topics, genres, and document types. My project experience ranges from website copy to brochures to books.
Content that fails to engage readers also fails its purpose to inform, educate, or entertain. I focus on reader engagement. That means I will: 1) correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, syntax, and sentence structure; 2) strengthen weak writing and clarify awkward phases; 3) identify discrepancies, inconsistencies, redundancies, and other flaws for remediation; and 4) suggest improvements where appropriate to enhance readers' engagement and comprehension.
I work in English only and default to U.S. English conventions. The rate posted covers and initial round of editing, a second round of editing revised content, and a final round of proofreading per 1,000 words.
