    Knowledgeable Expertise in Making Stories Shine

    United States - Portfolio: 8

    Editing fiction is a passion of mine. There is really no other place that I can give free reign to my fascination with watching Story emerge from a bunch of squiggles on the page. My professional skill set has developed over several decades. I spent nearly ten years freelancing as an editor and writer for major publishing houses, another decade and then some teaching writing strategies and skills to writers from kindergarten through college. I've sailed around the world twice, studied history, mythology, magic, science, philosophy and folk stories with an eye towards crafting great stories. I've got a couple of novels under my belt, and a few award winning stories. In the end, though, it is all about guiding you, the writer, as you prepare your story to bridge the gap between manuscript and publication. My edits are guaranteed to be insightful, accurate and clearly presented. Comments offer strategies, guidelines and resources for making improvements. Copy edits are clearly explained, and suggestions focus on maintaining the voice and integrity that you have crafted into the story. Whether you are looking for a simple manuscript evaluation, a substantive edit, copy editing or full developmental edit, exceptional editing is here, ready and waiting at a reasonable price.

    United States

    Capable editor/rewriter of a range of materials, particularly those requiring familiarity with academic writing conventions and those that can benefit from expertise in Christian Theological Studies and Apologetics (I have a Master's degree in each). Especially good at closely analyzing and critiquing ideas and their implications (finding internal tensions and contradictions, recognizing problematic implications, and suggesting ways to correct such defects), I can also (thanks to my broad experience and education) helpfully critique, edit, revise, or extensively rework (rewrite) a range of materials. (My work experience ranges from data conversion/recovery and computer/network maintenance to general office/administration, news monitoring, and transcript editing. My education includes Literature/Writing and Liberal Arts/Psychology baccalaureate degrees, Windows 7 and Network+ certifications, and continuing education in a variety of subjects.) Services include: Writing, editing, research assistance, identification of logical errors, correction of inconsistencies, introduction of greater clarity and cogency, and related services. Please note that on hourly jobs all job-relates activities, such as phone consultations, will be counted toward the project hours to be billed. NOTE ON WORK HISTORY: Projects with start dates prior to August 2015 display rates based on lower fees charged by Elance (a company that Upwork acquired). Had these same jobs been started on Upwork with its current fees, rates charged to the client would have been higher. More:
