Editing

As a freelance editor, I work with a mix of writers (fiction and non-fiction), business owners and influencers, that include experienced and novice content creators. I have specialised experience in governmental and technical writing, narrative creative writing, blogging, and crafting resumes. Whether you’re preparing to publish a book, instruction manual, catalogue, website content—or that eye-catching resume to land a new job—I can help you to polish the rough edges and make your work shine.

Types of Editing

Not sure exactly what you need? Below is a guide to the types of editing you might want. If you’re new to working with editors—or just aren’t sure what your content needs—feel free to contact me to discuss what would work best for you.

Copyedit

For a copyedit, I will make corrections to spelling, punctuation, grammar, dropped words, and incorrectly used words. This kind of editing does not include improving flow, pacing, clarity, structure, consistency, continuity, or content. You should have already had someone complete a line edit before submitting your work for a copyedit.

Copyedit: starts at US$0.01 per word

Line Edit

This is what most writers are interested in. The objective of a line edit is to make your writing polished, professional and “invisible”. This involves correcting errors while improving flow, clarity, and pacing. A line edit includes:

  • Correcting errors
  • Rewriting/revising passages
  • Reworking wordy or difficult passages
  • Identifying and eliminating repetitive word choices
  • Ensuring stylistic consistency
  • Improving narrative flow
  • Identifying continuity errors

Line Edit: starts at US$0.03 per word
