I offer copy editing and proofreading services to help you communicate your message the way it’s meant to be read.

I’m the person who notices a double space where there should only be one, and who cringes at the absent period at the end of a sentence.

I believe that writing should be clean of distracting errors, so it can be easily grasped (and enjoyed!) by your reader. Let me come in to polish your work, so you can focus on the bigger – and more important – picture that is your content.

Copy Editing

Even the best writers need an editor to give their content a sweep before hitting “publish.”

I will review and edit your writing for improved organization, clarity, and flow so that what you want to communicate is presented in the most readable and impactful way possible.

Copy editing also includes everything covered in my proofreading services (see below).

Copy Editing Plus

With my background in marketing and communications, I can also edit your writing with an eye to the target audience you serve.

In addition to my full copy editing service, I will review your business’ target audience persona to understand your customers’ needs, challenges, and values. I’ll also get familiar with your brand voice to embody the style/tone of voice your customers will want to listen to.

Haven’t created a target audience persona or identified your brand voice yet? Let’s add it to the package and work on it together. These pieces are essential to ensure that all your future copy is laser-targeted towards your intended reader.

Proofreading

Having your writing proofread means your reader won’t be distracted by rambling sentences or spelling errors. Instead, they can focus on the important message you’re trying to deliver to the world.

I will proofread your content to ensure accuracy of spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as consistency in formatting and style.

My Copy Editing and Proofreading Projects

My copy editing and proofreading projects have spanned a broad range of communication products, including website copy, marketing emails, e-books, guides, brochures, academic journal manuscripts, technical reports, resumes, and more.

My projects have also involved a diversity of topics (e.g., farming, the environment, mental health and substance use, fisheries science, genetic biology, etc.) and clients (e.g., academics, students, non-profit organizations, etc.).
