30 minutes of copy editing


25 per unit - Virtual OK

I love the written word and helping people best communicate their ideas, stories, and business needs in writing. I've been working as a professional writer for a decade— from magazine journalism to fact-checking, research, ghost writing and copy editing.

Maybe your business' web copy could use a facelift? Or perhaps you've written a short story or blog post that just needs an extra set of eyes to clean up stray spelling and grammar mistakes? I offer editing for a variety of projects— if you don't see what you're looking for, just ask!

+ blog posts
+ dating profiles
+ fiction and non-fiction prose
+ marketing copy
+ personal letters
+ product copy
+ professional correspondence
+ resumes
+ web copy

I will work remotely with you via Google docs or emailed files. For projects that must be done in less than one week, please contact me first to check availability.

This service is offered in 30 minute increments. Please consider the size of your project and how long it will take or contact me first for a time estimate. This is for editing services only. I hope to add discipline-specific writing services soon.
