Introduction: I am a word and sentence sculptor. Let me be the solution to your writing challenges! My work as a freelance copy editor has been a journey of discovery and gratitude. I am forever inspired by the courage and insight of the writers I meet. It is my honor to work with authors of all different manuscripts and documents and to experience the magic and the power of the written word. I have a Masters in English, as well as a Master of Social Work, and I am the author of ESL grammar chapters in a Freshman Composition Handbook and a writing skills book. I have had many years of experience teaching/coaching/tutoring writers with all types of academic assignments in all disciplines - applications, seminar projects, dissertations, etc. - as well as copy for fiction and nonfiction manuscripts. My fee is by the hour or by the page, negotiable depending on the writing project. It is my goal to have a fair and equitable relationship with all my clients and to provide excellent copy editing/proofreading services at fair prices. And I promise to meet your deadline!

Ellen is very thorough in her review and editing process. I found her to be engaging and accurate in her suggestions and recommendations to improve my manuscript. Her willingness to take the time to discuss things and adjust to accommodate the needs of the client was impeccable and a joy to work with. Great price! I highly recommend her for any work and will use her again in the future!

I truly enjoyed working with Ellen! She wrote a blurb and summary for my book and they turned out amazingly beautiful! Her work ethics were on point. It was so refreshing to get results on time for a change. And her editing ... so professional! I cannot express how pleased I am!

I hired Ellen to proof and edit my children’s book. It was a wonderful experience working with her. She was professional and so easy to work and communicate with. She was very committed to my project and her attention to detail took my project to the next level. She took the time to talk with me on multiple occasions to make sure my story was well-written, concise, understood, and had the clarity I was looking for. I highly recommend Ellen for any editing services you may need and I’m looking forward to working with her again on my next project. Thank-you Ellen!! Jamie
