Are you working on a book, book chapter, or journal article? Editing can make all the difference to your final product. When you work on a text for any length of time it becomes difficult to spot errors. I can help make your text flow and your ideas shine through.
University and college faculty, independent scholars and non-fiction writers: I’ll help you polish your book manuscript, book chapter or article before you submit it to a publisher. I’ll make sure that style is consistent throughout your edited collection. I can help with the tasks you find most tedious of all, such as checking citation format and checking notes or in-text citations against your bibliography or reference list. Please note that I do not edit theses, dissertations, research proposals, or papers for academic credit.
Organizations: When the work you do relies on clear communication, getting the wording and the tone right is especially important. I’ll help you produce clearly written and well structured reports, briefings, proceedings, literature reviews, and annotated bibliographies.
