I have been a freelance writer for a number a years. My writing has mostly been focused within the fly fishing industry. I have written for several newspapers, magazines and on a continual basis for a blog for a large national fly fishing company. Recently, I wrote my first book. I used Carly to edit and proof my book. I found her extremely helpful in all facets of editing from proofing to grammar usage as well as providing suggestions and guidance for sentence and paragraph structure. Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend her services. Reggie H

Duane proofread and copy edited an article on Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro for my journal submission. He was very nice, quick and responsive. Duane helped me with spelling and grammatical errors, provided feedback on rewording sentences, and commented on redundancy. I used Duane for this particular work as I am submitting the article to a Humanities conference (instead of Music) and wanted to see if my arguments would make sense to people outside of the musical field. The only thing I would say about the editing was that Duane didn't address issues with academic formatting and citation rules. (I use the Chicago Style). Overall it was a good experience.

While copy-writes are respected, our need to understand technical books can exceed our ability to remain conscious, listening to them makes them instantly more accessible, and much easier to understand. With the right "Text-to-speech" utilities, the clarity of almost any subject matter can be made open to you.

Developmental editing, copy editing, copy writing, and proofreading. I am a Seattle-based writer and long-time word nerd; fifteen years of work in independent bookstores (I now work in a public library) has kept me in constant contact with many kinds of writing both good and bad. In 2005 I completed the University of Washington Extension's "Program in Editing" (the only accredited copy editing course in the country that I am aware of) for which I received a certificate, and I earned a B.A. in English literature from The Evergreen State College in 1999. I have done freelance copy editing work for two local non-profit organizations (brochures, newsletters, press releases), and have helped numerous individuals with websites, resumes, graduate school applications, PowerPoint presentations, speeches, essays, proposals, articles, term papers, cover letters and correspondence. I am a fan of the Gregg Reference Manual and of course, use the current edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. I also have ready access to a wide variety of grammar books, dictionaries (preferring the current Merriam-Webster's Collegiate), and thesauri. I am also capable of utilizing the Associated Press style book and have a passing acquaintance with The New York Times Manual of Style and Turabian. References available upon request. I enjoy helping insecure essayists sharpen and polish their prose just as much as I do the more advanced writers. Copy editing is both an art and a science. I have to see the words before I can decide if I am the best person for the job- and I will tell you if I think you should take your work elsewhere. So let me see what you are trying to improve and we can take it from there. Note: I have a regular job so I am slightly selective with the jobs I take on.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
