Sara did excellent work for me on a biography I am competing Her skills aren't merely formal. She has an excellent eye for style and economy as well. Beyond this, she is prompt and wonderfully cooperative. I highly recommend her.Aug 29, 2013Verified
I needed help structuring my first novel draft--a wild project. Somerville Editors gave detailed multi-level feedback that really helped. Professional, timely, and personable. I received thoughtful feedback for much less in cost.May 10, 2018
I contacted Sara on craigslist while searching for someone who could help me with editing my graduate school application essays. The application was due about 3 days after I initially made contact with Sara. In any case, I could not finish my drafts by the time I told her I would due to a family emergency. I was frazzled and discombobulated. About 6 hours before it was due, she edited and proofread 2 of my essays. She paid keen attention to detail and stayed up late in the evening to make sure I could get these in on time. The finished product was flawless. She goes above and beyond for her clients!Apr 18, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $40 an hour and $35 an hour for full-time students. For clients who request an estimate, I edit three to five pages to determine how long it will take me.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I ask new customers what level of editing they're looking for and whether there's anything specific that they'd like me to do. Some people are very specific about what they're looking for: they want me to maintain their voice or they don't want me to; they want me to make their writing less wordy; they want me to pay special attention to certain passages or transitions. I customize my edits in accordance with their requirements.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Toronto and have published a book, Wittgenstein's Account of Truth, and several scholarly and popular articles. My writing skills enable me to improve the style of the manuscripts I edit. I've also taken proofreading and copyediting courses at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.
