You write. I edit.

Thank you for visiting

As an English and history major with a love of words and a talent for administrative detail, I will work with you to develop your writing project into a polished and professional final product. Copyediting can take a piece of work from the draft stage to completion by fine-tuning minutiae that might be overlooked by the writer.

My education, administrative experience, extensive reading habits, and eye for grammar and spelling would be an asset to any project requiring precise and creative use of the English language.

I specialize in editing genre fiction for writers who are polishing a final draft of their manuscript. I also have experience in research, legal and business terminology, website content, resumes, and academic papers (I am familiar with both MLA and Chicago styles). I would be pleased to discuss the specifics of your project and provide you with a quote. Contact me for more information!
