Editing and Interior Book Formatting
Last active: 20 days ago
Over the past eight years, I have done freelance editing of short stories, novels, essays, dissertations, theses, letters, job applications, sermons, and science manuals for professional and nonprofessional writers, academics and non-academics, native and non-native English speakers, and writers of both US and UK English. I am familiar with standard editing marks, track changes, and the Chicago Manual of Style. I have taken courses in linguistics and have an exceptional knowledge of the English language.
Proofreading: I fix typographical and grammatical errors.
Copy-editing: I fix typographical and grammatical errors, mark continuity errors, and generally clean up the manuscript without making any content alterations.
Substantive editing: I fix typographical and grammatical errors, mark continuity errors, and generally clean up the manuscript. I give recommendations and critique on content, message, timeline, and accuracy. I offer suggestions on rewrites, including (optionally) doing brief sample rewrites.
