Academic and Non-Fiction Editing
Is this you?
- Your dissertation advisor has suggested you hire someone to give your chapters a good once-over for inconsistencies and APA formatting.
- You’ve completed a first draft of your nonfiction manuscript and need professional help polishing it for publication.
- You’ve reworked your document so many times you can’t see what’s there anymore.
What I can do for you:
- Correct any errors in grammar, punctuation, or standard usage.
- Bring to your attention inconsistencies in content (repetitions, contradictions) or places that are unclear or confusing.
- Provide stylistic suggestions that can make your writing clearer and effective. I am very respectful of the voice of my clients; my job is to make their writing the best it can be.
- Make organizational suggestions so that the logic and flow of ideas are the best they can be.
- Edit the reference list/bibliography to make it conform to APA or MLA style.
- Explain grammar and style issues clearly so you can become a better writer.
- Bring your writing to native fluency if you are a non-native speaker of English.
- Help you organize your project and keep you moving forward toward completion.
