Copy editing & Proofreading

Sometimes your own voice is the best way to...well, get your own voice heard.

You've written some webpages, or a content piece for a marketing campaign -- or you have some legacy material you want to polish up.

But that doesn’t mean you’re a grammar nerd, or care much about syntax and sentence structure.

Not a problem – because I do. I really do. (Which leaves me wondering: am I just a nerd, or have I relocated into the geek ZIP code?)

You know that errors and inconsistencies and plain bad writing tarnish your brand. I can take care of that. In fact, I’ve been taking care of that for almost 30 years as a copy editor. I can also proofread any of your existing documents for spelling, punctuation and mechanics, localized for Canadian, American and international marketplaces.

Kevin was the editor of my book.... He certainly has a way with the English language that made the book more readable and easier to comprehend.

My hourly rates vary, depending on the complexity of editing (substantive, copy or proofreading) and proximity of deadline.
