Editing your document

For optimal completion time and effective communication of proposed changes, submissions should be Microsoft Word documents or Google Docs. I edit with the Track Changes tool in Microsoft Word or the Suggesting mode in Google Docs, and I offer instructions for easily reviewing and implementing edits. This process allows you to have the final word on all revisions. Certain projects are not possible to submit in these formats, so please ask about sending other types of documents; there are many creative solutions available to us.

Document submission and free estimate

Please send your document or sample pages from it to my email address and describe the project, including any special requirements or timing considerations. I will be in touch with you within one day to discuss your project and give you a free estimate based on document length and level of editing required. I always return edited documents on time and within our agreed budget. Is your due date approaching? I accommodate rush jobs whenever possible. I’m available to answer your questions before, during, and after the editing process.

For your information

I work on a freelance project basis. Payment is made through PayPal unless we’ve made other arrangements. Certain projects require a deposit. I am responsible for copyediting as outlined on the Editing page, as well as any special formatting or additional work agreed upon. I am not responsible for validating your research or conclusions, or composing new text beyond the editing process. Submissions must be your own writing; any quoted text should be cited appropriately. I expect no recognition—although I always appreciate referrals—and you retain sole ownership of your work. Your contact information and your documents are treated confidentially.
