I’m a proofreader and editor with experience in books, business documents, and academic essays. I’ve helped authors get their manuscripts ready for publication, non-profits clarify their communication with the outside world, businesses with their content, and college students with perfecting their papers to please their professors.
I currently hold a BA in English with a minor in business administration from Christopher Newport University where I graduated with honors. I’m also in the process of earning a Master’s in Publishing from George Washington University with an expected graduation in 2018.
Contact me for an estimate as cost really depends per project and what your needs are.
Services I offer:
- Editing: $20-35 an hour or $3 a page for editing.
- Proofreading: $1 a page for short projects or $16-20 an hour for proofreading.
- Manuscript reviews/critiques: $40.
I edit the first 5 pages free of charge as a courtesy to see if you like my work. What’s the difference between a proofreader and an editor? Read this.
I will say that I accept payment in installments if money is tight and for authors, it usually is. I get that! So if you need to work something out, I’m easy to work with. Just contact me and we’ll get it squared away.
I accept payments through Venmo and PayPal to make things easier. If you’re on Oahu send me a personal message so we can arrange a safe meeting. In the past I’ve met with writers in coffee shops and public libraries.
Don’t forget to tell me if you need to divide your payments up!
