Copyediting & Stylistic Editing
Let me make your writing shine.
I am available for hire on a freelance basis for copyediting and stylistic editing. These steps happen towards the end of the writing process. I don’t currently offer structural editing services (feedback on earlier drafts to improve the piece as a whole).
Types of Editing
- Ensures correct grammar, consistency, accuracy, and adherence to a given style manual. This helps you avoid embarrassing typos and mistakes.
- Stylistic editing
- One step up from copyediting, this improves clarity, coherence, and flow through minor changes at the sentence and paragraph level.
What I Edit
- Academic papers, manuscripts, dissertations
- Book manuscripts (fiction and non-fiction)
- Blog and social media posts
- Social media profile pages
- Web content (e.g., landing pages, about pages)
- Shop listings
- Marketing copy (e.g., ads, brochures, newsletters)
- Reports, manuals, documentation, technical writing
I’m open to other projects if you don’t see yours listed above!
I usually charge a rate per-page or per-word based on the length and type of document and scope of work required. For example, copyediting a website or a couple of blog posts is usually less intensive than an academic essay.
