~~ Editing ~~

You write to convey information to a reader. I help to make sure that the information is readily accessible to the reader. I check for grammar and punctuation, and I may suggest some rewording for clarity.

Here are Editors Canada standards for copy editor and stylistic editor.

“Alex was a pleasure to work with as she was friendly, available, generous, efficient, and sharp! I would highly recommend Alex for editing and proofreading services.” — Lori Rosove, 23: Voices of Adoption

Thesis proposal

“Gentle, wise, and perceptive, Alex lent her skills and patience as editor for my latest book.  She has a breadth of vision for placement while never missing a ‘jot or tittle.’   Fun to work with, firm and helpful, her humorous ‘but the choice is yours,’ will stay in my head.  A true professional with high standards and excellent work habits, I am so fortunate to have worked with her on a sometimes-difficult manuscript!” — David Morrison
