Freelance editing and proofreading
As a copy editor and proofreader, I work on a variety of materials for many different industries and authors.
Types of materials I work with
These items include website copy, manuscripts (fiction and nonfiction—all ages), reports, articles, manuals, catalogs, email campaigns, blogs, and resumes. The formats vary from Word documents and PDFs to PowerPoint presentations and Excel spreadsheets. These jobs have been with large, fast-paced companies such as Amazon and smaller businesses and individuals.
I will take a look at the text to get an idea of the scope of the project and the time it will take to complete. I will ask you for any concerns or directions that you may have and other pertinent info.
It is important to leave the writer’s authentic voice intact, so no worries about massive changes. I am easy to work with and will consider anything out of the norm if it is essential to your style.
And more …
Besides editing and proofreading, I am called on to do writing to improve the text when needed. So, if you find yourself at a loss for words, I can help with that as well.
In addition to working, studying is a constant, as there is no end to what you can learn in this ever-changing field. My goal is always to be a valuable and versatile asset to my clients as their go-to editor.
