Using correct and appropriate language is imperative to getting the point across, and even a misplaced apostrophe or misspelling can damage or change a message. Minor errors in texts are blaring to me. I find them distracting, and I’m inspired to work toward sharpening writers’ work with a fresh pair of eyes and an innate understanding of English composition and grammar.
Whether it be advertisements, articles, textbooks, novels, or even signage, I catch errors and strive to fix them. I currently do freelance editing ranging from novels to school papers. I work thoroughly and take my time on every piece, catching anything I can find including misspellings, punctuation, and sentence structure.
If you are a writer and are looking for an editor, go no further! Contact me if you are interested in having your work sharpened up for publication or for anything else.
Besides freelance ($15/hr), I’m interested in a full-time editing position in a magazine, newspaper, or online publication. I’ll bring a creative and curious eye in both design and vernacular.
