Who Needs an Editor?

Anyone with a document that must be clear and free of errors needs an editor. Even editors need editors! We all have trouble seeing our own mistakes.

I have the background, skills, and experience to help you deliver your message more effectively.

Business owners...

  • Clean, clear copy — whether promo material, website content, or correspondence — boosts your credibility and builds trust. Mistakes cause confusion and can hurt your bottom line.
  • Even only an hour of my time could be enough to prevent costly or embarrassing mistakes and put your mind at ease.
  • You’ll appreciate that I can often squeeze in small jobs on short notice with a speedy turnaround.

Researchers...

  • Investing in an editor saves you valuable time and makes it much more likely that your paper will be accepted, respected, and cited.
  • In addition to correcting grammar and spelling, I can help you root out weak arguments, fuzzy logic, and unclear or contradictory statements.
  • Whatever your journal’s style requirements (APA, etc.), I’ll relieve you of the tedious work of making your paper follow them.
  • I understand the academic and research environment. Not only do I have a master’s degree and my own peer-reviewed papers, I also have experience editing in natural sciences, social sciences, health, and education.

Publishers...

  • Do you need an editor who understands publishing? I’ve got over 20 years of experience copy editing and proofreading for book publishers, both in-house and freelance.
  • You can trust me to work effectively with managing editors, translators, designers, marketers, and, of course, authors. I have worked with over 200 authors of nonfiction, fiction, kidlit, and illustrated books.
  • Because I’m a certified copy editor, you can be confident that my skills meet rigorous standards (though you’re welcome to vet them on your own).
  • You can rely on me to meet deadlines and work to budget.
