Proofreading and Editing Services
About this pro
I think what makes me special is that I really care about my clients. Everyone seeks out an editor for different reasons; some want to learn to be better writers, others are tired of looking at their own words and need a new set of eyes, and some won't feel that their document is finished until a professional has edited it for them. And I work with my clients to make sure they get what they need from me, whether it's in-depth communication about the kinds of things I'm changing, or whether it's quick turnaround of the highest possible quality, or something else entirely. I'm not working with people because I like to write; I'm doing it because I like helping people with their writing, in the ways they need me. No matter how great your ideas are, if you can't explain them well, no one will care. And I love helping people to explain themselves in the best possible way. Novels can be more intriguing, academic papers can be clearer, and marketing materials can be more compelling--if they're well written. My favorite thing about editing work is knowing that someone looks and sounds better--like the best possible version of themselves--because I was able to help them.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure that you can trust the person you're working with. Not just that they're good at their job, or that they're going to be respectful of you and your work. But when you trust your writing to a proofreader, you're putting your hard work in their hands. Ask questions, ask for samples of their work if you like, ask for references. You need to know that you're going to be pleased, not just with the end result, but with the experience too.
