What kind of writing and editing do I do?
1. Academic. From 2016 to 2019 my academic work has included editing and/or proofreading a specialized online Canadian dictionary, a Canadian literary journal, and instructional materials for ESL learners.
2. Authors. I have assisted self-publishing authors at all stages of the editing process: with structural editing, copy editing, and proofreading. I edit non-fiction, mainly in the memoir genre. Several authors I have worked with have stories set within the context of some of the most dramatic historical events of the twentieth century—World War II and political revolutions in Europe.
Professional editing is essential for any author—editing software or friends who are “good spellers” are not a substitute! A self-published book should display the author’s best writing ability while preserving their unique voice; it should also be error-free and professional in appearance and layout.
3. Small businesses. I can edit your website and print materials to ensure they are grammatically perfect and express your messages concisely. I’m an experienced blogger who can write appropriate articles for your website. In addition, I can design and produce promotional materials such as brochures and flyers.
Plus, I’m eager to gain experience in scientific and medical editing. I have a B.Sc. in biology as well as an extensive background in psychology, human physiology, fitness, and nutrition.
