About / Services

I offer a variety of editing services including proofreading, copyediting, developmental editing, and technical editing, among others. This website is for prospective clients as well as fellow editors (I suggest the blog section for editors).

All editors have the same duty: to improve a manuscript without altering the writer’s voice or goals. The editor functions as the first reader, which means she looks for areas of the text that may annoy the intended audience or cast doubt on the author’s credibility.

Pricing depends on many factors. The Editorial Freelancers Association has a wonderful resource on editorial rates. Of course, depending on the project, rates vary considerably.

References used: The Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition), Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (11th Edition), AP Style, and The Copyeditor’s Handbook.
