Editing, Proofreading and Copywriting

Is there a tedious, word-oriented task you dread, such as proofreading promotional materials, creating copy for your website or writing class descriptions? Get that stuff off your plate so you can focus on the things you really enjoy. Do you need constructive feedback on a writing project? Are you feeling insecure about your syntax? Do you need someone to look for typos?

Here are just some of the things I will edit, proofread or in some cases write for you:

  • Essays
  • Books
  • Website content
  • Dance teacher bios
  • Delicate work emails
  • Texts to crushes

I have a degree in linguistics, I am not judgey and I know where apostrophes go. $1/word. Interesting trades considered.
