I provide professional English editing and proofreading services of nonfiction documents to creative people who communicate their ideas in writing. From articles to books, no matter what you write, I’ll help your material evolve from rough draft to published work.

“Good writing doesn’t come naturally, though most people seem to think it does.” — William Zinsser, On Writing Well

Now that you’ve completed your final draft, revised it, and revised it again, you deserve a break. I’ll edit your document so that it’s flawless, accurate, clear, coherent, and concise. Or, if it’s already edited, I’ll proofread it so that it’s ready to see the world.
