Editing & Proofreading

Not many editors have a mantra, but I do:

Economy of language prevents literary inflation.

Words are like currency: if you have too many, they’re not worth as much. I am a skilled editorial surgeon who has edited all of the following and more:

  • PhD dissertations/Master’s theses
  • Technical documents and instructions
  • Marketing copy
  • Product catalogs
  • Novels, short stories, and poems

Part of what makes me so good at editing is my ability to tighten up documents while preserving their rhetorical impact.

I’m also a skilled, sharp-eyed proofreader. I’ve proofread legal and medical documents, contracts, even textbooks. No project is too big or complex for me.
