Welcome
Hello there! My name is Marie and I am a freelance proofreader and non-fiction editor.

I have over 30 years' professional communication experience, with a background in marketing and advertising.

If you're a author, student, job seeker, small business...I can help! Email me and let's talk.
What I do
Editing involves carefully reviewing material before it is published, and suggesting or making changes to correct and improve material. I like to focus on proofreading and copy editing.
Proofreading

Examining material after layout or in its final format to correct errors in textual and visual elements. 

The material may be read in isolation or against a previous version. It includes checking for:

  • adherence to design
  • minor mechanical errors such as spelling mistakes
  • consistency and accuracy of elements in the material

Proofreading is checking a work after editing; it is not a substitute for editing.

Let's touch base if you need a round of proofing!

Copy editing
Editing to ensure correctness, accuracy, consistency, and completeness. 

It includes:
  • editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage
  • checking for consistency and continuity of mechanics and facts, including anachronisms, character names, and relationships
  • editing tables, figures, and lists
  • developing a style sheet or following one that is provided
  • correcting or querying general information that should be checked for accuracy
I'd be happy to discuss how copy editing can help your project.
