Misplaced Comma   quality editing where it counts


My 25 years of editing experience covers a wide variety of writing: basic articles, administrative and medical policies, technical materials, health care, academic, and more.

If your website content needs some polish, if you’re a small business embarking on a new marketing campaign, a corporation that needs help organizing and standardizing documentation, a start-up that needs basic user and technical documentation, an author with a book that needs a professional edit, or a student who needs that dissertation formatted for electronic submission, I can bring out the best in your writing, no matter the subject.

This is reading and correcting basic spelling and grammatical errors. No content corrections will be made to the manuscript.

This is formatting the manuscript to your standards in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat. Does not include proofreading or copy editing.

Copy Editing
This is reading for and correcting spelling and grammar, adherence to specific style guidelines, and includes basic formatting and minor suggestions to improve content and readability (when necessary).

Substantive Editing 
Working closely with the author to improve content, flow, readability, organization, development, audience identification, gaps or major problems in the text, and so on.

*For dissertations and other large projects, a 50% deposit is required, with the remaining balance due at completion of work.
