Are you looking for someone to transform your (shh) clunky sentences into strands of elegance?
To tidy up your grammar? To make your words coalesce so wonderfully that your readers will breeze through your content… and not be distracted by a misplaced apostrophe?
To ensure that your ideas are still coherent after you’ve stared at and tinkered with your work for… how many hours?
To identify confusing concepts? To remedy utterly nonsensical, befuddling, convoluted (read: unclear) phrasing?
How about someone who knows when to LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE and not touch a particular word or phrase?
You’ve come to the right place! (I bet you saw that coming.)
I love the written word. It’s amazing that, when put together just so, little signs and symbols allow us to communicate and share ideas; it’s a powerful and beautiful thing. But let rough, untamed copy out into the wild, and your arguments may be misinterpreted and/or misjudged, and your professional credibility takes a hit. (Cue scary music.)
I am detail obsessed and work diligently and tirelessly to address client needs. I have many years’ experience editing newspaper and magazine pieces, long-form academic articles, blog posts, and examination items. (I have a BS in biology and English and an MLIS in library and information sciences, so I am especially comfortable with topics relating to medicine and the humanities.) I am practiced in AP, MLA, AMA, and CMS and have also worked in accordance with in-house style guides.
Your ideas matter. That means your words matter. And that means you need an editor (me!). Editing is an art and requires a collaborative attitude, positivity, and mutual respect. (It sounds serious, but I promise it can be fun.) Let’s work together to fine-tune your work so that it fits both your vision and your readers’ expectations… and is the best it can be before being released upon the world. You’ve worked hard. Let it show!
