***Please note I am not currently accepting freelance editing projects.***
I partner with science and technology communicators during the final stages of content creation. My clients are businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies in the life sciences, health, the environment, and technology.
You’ve decided on the story and key messages, written and organized the content, and completed any revisions addressing big-picture issues. That’s where I come in. I shape and polish the content at the micro level to get it ready for publication.
I draw on several types of editing in my editorial toolkit: line editing, copyediting, and proofreading. If you aren’t sure which type of edit you need, that’s okay. I customize the level of edit for each project.
I do not offer original writing as part of my services.
Let me help you get your content out the door!
Line editing, also known as “stylistic editing,” improves language, clarity, coherence, and flow at the sentence and paragraph level. It occurs after the author has finished writing and organizing the content. Line editing is sometimes combined with copyediting.
Line editing includes:
Copyediting fixes mechanical issues at the sentence and word level to ensure clarity, coherence, consistency, and correctness. It occurs after all major content additions and rewrites are complete and before the design stage begins.
Proofreading is the final review of the content before publication. It takes place after the copyediting and design stages are complete. Any editorial corrections at this stage should be minor.
All written communications can benefit from an editor. The type of content I work with includes, but is not limited to:
Each project is different. Fees vary depending on the writing quality, project and topic complexity, communication time, turnaround time, and other factors.
After I understand your needs and review the content to be edited, I will create a customized project estimate.
