Editing Services

Academic editing

The goal of academic editing is to help writers effectively communicate their ideas. Editing is available for all types of academic and scientific writing.  I am proficient in APA, Chicago, MLA, AP, CP, and AMA.

developmental editing

Developmental editing assesses and reorganizes material to improve its organization and content. It also serves to clarify meaning, improve flow, and smooth language.

copy editing

Copy editing services include editing for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation, and other errors in the mechanics of style. This also includes editing the text to conform to the required style, checking for consistency of mechanics, and verifying internal consistency of facts.


This is the final tidy-up after your document has been copy edited. Proofreading verifies that design specifications have been followed and will identify any final spelling, typographical, and other errors.

comprehensive copy editing

Copy editing service with the added bonus of returning the document for a final polish.

beta reading

Having your fiction or nonfiction manuscript undergo a professional beta read ensures that you receive quality feedback and constructive criticism.
