Services

Perhaps you’ve written your masterpiece—or you at least have an idea for it in mind—but you’re not sure what to do next. Below please find a list of editorial services I provide, and feel free to contact me for more information.

Copyediting & Proofreading

The situation: Your writing is readable, but it would benefit from some polishing.

The solution: I comb through your writing and clean up any issues of punctuation, grammar, and spelling. I also make note of and correct any repetitive, inconsistent, or unclear passages of writing.

Content Editing

The situation: You haven’t shown your first draft to anyone, and you would like some feedback before sharing it with readers.

The solution: I read your manuscript with a fresh pair of eyes and provide you with a written critique. Later we discuss my feedback, and we plan what changes you will make to improve your writing.

Substantive Editing

The situation: Your great ideas wait to be revealed, but they need more than just copyediting to be readable.

The solution: After a copyedit, I provide you with written feedback as in a content edit, but I also edit sentence and paragraph structure, correct word usage errors (word choice, redundancy, clichés, etc.), and watch for issues of tone. I suggest revisions of unclear passages and note wordiness to trim down.

Résumés, Cover Letters, Personal Statements

The situation: You have a list of experiences, credentials, and interests that you need to represent to the world, but you’re not sure where to start.

The solution: After asking you a few more questions about yourself and your application, I take your list and format it into a document showcasing what is most impressive about you. For résumés, I highlight your qualifications with key industry buzzwords that employers want to see. For cover letters and personal statements, I elaborate upon your list of skills and experiences, painting a picture of the ideal candidate—you.
