I can help you with your writing and editing projects. Need help with that new resume? I'm your man. Need an experienced editor's eye for that important letter or business proposal? I'm your man. I have 20 years of experience in the the publishing field, writing and editing.(show less)
As a professional writer, blogger and author, I've accomplished an intermediate to advanced proficiency in editing (i.e., the correction, condensation and organization of an author's material, and if need be, material modification so as to produce a consistently accurate re-presentation of a completed work. Not to be confused with proofreading, i.e., the reading of a galley proof or an electronic copy of a publication to detect and correct production errors of text or art within the publication process), and copy-editing (i.e., what an editor does through reviewing word-selection, sentence logic and structure-in terms of a complete reading-to ensure the contextual continuity of an author's text). I have also gained a full range of primary and secondary school instruction and tutoring proficiencies in reading comprehension, writing, math and science. My strength in writing, however, is the ability to-beyond the words written-perceive an author's single most important driving intention, or, an author's attempt at presenting to his or her readers, an integrated tapestry of multiple meanings. This ability serves to enhance the overall tone of a particular work to bring fullness to the author's vision and purpose often times hidden in the subtle use of nuanced language. Whether the author is an eighth year primary school student attempting to produce a book report, a high school student wishing to improve expository writing skills, or a college student desiring to read, comprehend and assimilate subject matter with greater speed so as to fulfill the demand to create essay responses with time saving efficiency, the ability to perceive the author's need to maintain her or his voice while overcoming the learning complexities of writing and language is best appreciated by former clients as one author's highly motivated desire to pass on techniques for success to others. You may find me on LinkedIn and Facebook offering links to educational blogs, videos on a wide variety of subjects, book excerpts and reviews.(show less)
