Karen edited my Senior year DECA research paper. It was a 30 page publi relations campaign, and with the help of her editing my paper placed 1st at State level competition. Karen Ferguson is very professional and timely. She makes the customer feel like her number one priority.
Working with Laurel Airica has been such a blessing and eye opener when it comes to the written word. Laurel's work in editing is not just a job for her, but an immersion in the words that are written and how to make the best interpretation. Laurel has worked on a few of my writing projects and turned what was a nugget into pure gold.
Dave is a wonderful copyeditor! He helped me with my resume as well as other business correspondence over a number of months. He is thoughtful, thorough and over-delivered every time.

Kelsey has helped me with editing and proofreading on several translation projects. She's very diligent, quick to respond and creative with her wording solutions.
Sheila did the first edits on an article I was publishing in an academic journal. Aside from grammatical and spelling errors and inconsistencies, she caught a "bug" in my research that helped shore up my conclusion. Very happy I found her and I look forward to working with Sheila again.

I have a master's degree in journalism and over 8 years of experience writing and editing. I have written creative material, technical content, and marketing copy. I am comfortable editing short and long content for voice, grammar, and clarity. I have experience editing all of the above styles of writing, as well as academic work.
From a young age, I fell in love with the power of words to shape and inform meaning. I studied primarily literature, writing, and cultural studies in both my undergraduate and graduate programs. In my freelance work, I edit primarily academic and business documents, as well as web and advertising copy, for a variety of high-profile editing and proofreading companies. In addition, I also edit for independent clients seeking my services to ensure that their writing is clear, concise, powerful, and communicative of their intended style and message. As a professional editor, my particular area of preference is book-length manuscripts that require editing prior to being submitted to a literary agent and/or (self-)publishing. I will work with you to determine your specific needs, providing extensive editing using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word. Additionally, I utilize the Comments feature to provide detailed comments that are meant to strengthen your writing, point out discrepancies or areas in need of clarification, and offer suggestions. What distinguishes my services from other editorsÃ¢ÂÂ services is that I am available for Skype consultations to discuss any questions that you may have. In my editing work, I consider myself to be a true partner in helping to ensure that your writing is the most powerful, clear, and expressive that it can be, all while editing for grammar, spelling, syntax, and organization.
At Worth Reading, we have a passion for the written word and an eye for detail. For our clients, that translates to differing things, depending upon the type of work submitted. Manuscripts: We offer our clients a sentence-by-sentence read-through to check for readability, flow, and proper writing mechanics. If the work is fiction, we offer opinion on character believability also. Moreover, for those whose work is edited by our firm, we offer a venue for promotion (if self-publishing) through our sister site, Literary Adventures. For those searching for resume writing, we can work with what you've already written, checking for grammar, punctuation, or spelling errors; or, we can help you build your resume from the ground up. In need of academic assistance? We can assist with formatting in APA or MLA, research to provide usable facts from reliable sources, checking for potential plagiarism, and, of course, work on writing mechanics.

If you are looking for a COMMUNICATOR that you can count on . . . like a Michael Jordon, who, with the game hanging in the balance, looks up and sees that there are only two seconds left on the game clock, and makes his move. The crowd leaps to their feet standing in suspended slo-mo animation, every heart waiting to be told it can beat again. Jordan slips past a defender, fakes a pass and as smooth as ice cream melting on a hot summer day, slams the ball through the hoop - notifying life on the planet that it can breathe again. Immediately, like an array of daffodils on a warm spring day, life bursts forth in the arena. With Jordan gliding through the air, the sun arrested its westward progression, the birds stopped chirping and every lung in the arena put inhaling on hold. Through the eerie silence, the only noise heard, in all the world, was the swishing sound that ball and net make, just as the buzzer announces game over! . . . Then I am a great fit as your Communications Specialist!
I am a writer and editor with an BA in English and an MA in US History. I've been writing for exhibits and visitor centers for the past 15 years, and I'm currently editing novels, as well. I research, plan, write, and act as editor and proofreader for exhibits in museums, visitor centers, interpretive trails, and the like. I've completed over 70 projects for public and private clients. Since 2012, I have also been employed by Barking Rain Publishing as a fiction editor. Editing begins with development and content, followed by at least three refining passes at the work--ending with line-by-line proofreading. I hope my experience matches your needs.

The wrong fit can spell disaster while the right one leads to success.
