MEDICAL & NONFICTION EDITING:

  • Content editing:
    • As a content editor, I help with the development and revision of the book or paper to ensure that the material is well-organized, the ideas are clear and complete, and the arguments are strong. I also help with style and readability. My knowledge and experience can help you turn your ideas into a well-articulated, structured piece of writing.
  • Line editing
    • When line editing a manuscript, I focus on the construction of sentences and paragraphs, making suggestions for how to reword sections as needed in order to improve the flow, clarity, and efficiency of the writing.
  • Copy editing
    • Copy editing is what many people think of as proofreading. I will go through your writing with a fine-tooth comb to correct any errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Copy editing can also include the formatting of references. This should be the final stage of editing before publication.
  • English-language editing
    • English-language editing typically involves a combination of copy and line editing. I have worked with several international clients who speak English as a second language.

Every book, paper, and blog requires a unique ratio of content, line, and copy editing. I can work with you to help you determine what type of editing is best for your project.
