Manuscript cleanups, website refreshes, and project-based proofreading — I’m with you every step of the way.

I approach all editing projects with enthusiasm and a keen eye for detail. My aim is to turn your work from draft to masterpiece, no matter what it is you want to share with the world.

“When you write a book, you spend day after day scanning and identifying the trees. When you’re done, you have to step back and look at the forest.”

Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

What I can do for you

I have crafted and published fiction and creative non-fiction works, news articles, blog posts, academic essays, and marketing content in a number of formats. Professionally, I’ve taught writing composition courses, tutored college students on their writing assignments, and worked in marketing as an editor and content creator.

With my experience and expertise in all things writing, you get more than corrected typos or a few short notes. You can hire me for any combination of the following professional editing services:

  • Thorough spelling and grammar edits for mechanical errors
  • Comprehensive sentence- and paragraph-level revisions to make your writing flow
  • Suggestions on structural revisions to improve organization
  • Constructive feedback and consultation

I am committed to helping your writing shine, no matter what level of editing it needs.

How to get started

Because all writers and writing projects are unique, the exact cost depends on a number of factors. If you’re not sure what you’ll need from me, just ask!

To best determine what I can do for you, I’ll first need a synopsis and excerpt of the work you want edited along with your goals for the piece–what you think it needs.

From there, I will give you a list of recommendations and an estimate of cost. For longer works, I charge by the manuscript page (12-point font, double-spaced, 1” margins). For web content and shorter projects, I can offer rates based on word count or project scope. Please contact me for further details about rates and payment.

Let’s chat

I am based in Rochester, NY, but my proofreading and editing services are available for any English-language writing project, no matter where you live. If you have any questions, send me an email or fill out my contact form.
