Editing
and revision

Maybe you’re a terrible speller, or someone who needs a second set of eyes on a big report, or maybe English is not your first language - you want to be confident your work presents you in the very best light. I will help you get there.

 

I review just about any kind of document: manuscripts, Powerpoints, emails, essays, reports, etc. I look for spelling and grammar, concise paragraph and word placement, and word choice. I track changes so you know exactly what I’ve changed, and I leave comments and questions to clarify, flesh out or simplify.

I edit using Canadian Press Style, the industry standard for copywriting and journalism.

Factors that affect editing speed include: difficulty of the material; the current state of the document or manuscript, and whether the requirements are clearly articulated.
