Editing

Editing is what I do best and what I like to do best. I enjoy figuring out what people really want to say, and finding the best way to convey that message. I can correct your grammar and punctuation, add clarity and consistency, improve the flow, condense long texts, adapt them for specific audiences, or completely overhaul them — it’s up to you.
