    Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

    My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

    Delivering clear, compelling content

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Portfolio: 8

    Why take chances with your written content? I've spent my working life improving content -- in traditional print and online -- and can do that with yours. In his excellent new book about self-publishing called "APE," entrepreneur extraordinaire Guy Kawasaki says hiring a top-notch professional editor is essential. I can tighten your nuts and bolts via correct language and grammar and also suggest structural fixes. Beyond simple proofreading, my writing, editing and webinar services help clients who struggle with content reach their target audiences with sharp, meaningful and relevant information. Whether it’s your blog, website, newsletter, book, social media accounts or more, getting to the point and conveying simply and strong what you do or offer is essential. That’s where I come in. If I can't be of service, I may know others who can meet your needs. After all, creating and fostering relationships -- and giving back -- is a cornerstone of conducting business today.
