1. Need someone to proofread your papers, reports, application and cover letters, essays, professional writings, newsletters, web & advertising copy, book drafts....? I would check for, and correct, the following:

• grammar
• punctuation
• sentence structure
• spelling [Ewe wood bee amazed at watt get's threw spell cheque!]

2. Need someone to review and edit your work to be sure your narrative hangs together without obvious repetitions, too much verbiage, confusing and complicated constructions, obscure allusions, "flat" descriptions...?

3. Need ideas for your writing - where to take it next?

4. Need tight, benefit-driven advertising copy - to inspire and intrigue your customers - on your website, social media, or in print?

I work with students, professionals, small business owners, marketers, produce clean, clear, compelling copy.

I'm a retired educator (with years of teaching experience) and hold an M.Ed. from the University of Victoria. I'm an "eagle-eyed" perfectionist and will enjoy making your writing better, more elegant and readable...something you'll feel confident about.

My fee is $25 per hour. Payment can be made via eTransfer, cheque or PayPal. Sometimes I ask for partial payment in advance. Larger projects can be paid in installments.

Contact me to discuss your situation. I provide a confidential service. You can send me a copy of your document - whole or in part - (usually via MSWord as an email attachment or link) and I'll give you a "ballpark" figure for editing it. Depending on what you require - a quick read to spot spelling, grammar, punctuation errors OR a thorough revision - will determine time and cost.

Happy Writing...
