Looking for an editor to help your manuscript, article, or website reach its polished potential? I offer a variety of editing services backed by a master’s in journalism (emphasis: news and copyediting) and nearly 10 years of editing experience.
Developmental editing (most intensive editing)
This type of editing takes in the book as a whole — how is the flow? Are there major redundancies or issues? Developmental editing takes a macro approach to identify and correct textual weaknesses, preparing the project before it moves onto proofing.
Line editing (moderately intensive editing)
A blend between developmental editing and proofreading, line editing is beneficial for projects that are well-structured and free of major issues. Line editing looks at flow, language, and consistency; it helps reduce minor redundancies and makes your project concise and powerful.
Proofreading (least intensive editing)
Watch out, typos — I’m coming for you. If your text is in need of double-checking that rids it of grammatical and mechanical issues, proofreading is what you’re looking for. Please note: proofreading is less intensive and is meant for drafts and projects that do not need substantial work.
Are all those figures and facts correct? Fact-checking helps ensure your references are spot-on.
Business plan editing
I have seven years of business plan editing experience, working with business plan and grantwriting companies in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia. Let me help you polish your business plan and start your new venture on the right foot.
Unsure of what kind of editing your project needs?
Consider an editing consultation! I review your project and assemble a report outlining work recommendations, major issues, and potential solutions. Consultations include a 30-minute meeting.
