Editorial services

I specialize in project development and numerous forms of editing: substantive editing, line editing, copy editing, and proofreading. At all times I use a collaborative approach, working back and forth with the client. You will always have the final say, and the finished product will always be yours.

Project development: I guide your idea from vision to execution, and provide a timeline for launching your project. It’s a mixture of coaching and project management; or as I like to call it, professional cheerleading.

Substantive editing: The complete overhaul. I review your entire document or website and edit the content, offering suggestions for organization, clarity, cohesion, and flow. I help you identify and present the primary argument or question.

Line editing: I massage your text line by line, weeding out unnecessary words or phrases, and seeking clarity and cohesion throughout.

Copy editing: Where the rubber meets the road. I review your copy for errors in spelling, grammar, or syntax.

Proofreading: I read your final, edited text with a view to finding any lingering typos or other errors. Proofreading is also the best time to check the position and alignment of images and text.

Pause & Breathe: I am available to quickly review your email or newsletter before you send it to that important client or to your 20,000 subscribers.
