.... about experience
Chicago Manual of Style is my primary standard. For college papers or graduate school papers, I would be abiding by the MLA and APA guidelines.
I graduated from Bethel University with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Writing. My poems and essays have been published in The Standard magazine, Korean Quarterly, The Daily Planet and Real magazine.
Writing and editing for me have been (and always will be) seasonal and project-based.
.... about your writing
You want someone to take a good look at the flow of your words. As a book coach or an article coach, I will walk alongside your personal vision for the document. Together we'll help it take excellent shape. After our revisions, I can recommend printing presses for self-publishing options. If you are looking for a Formatting Editor or a Publisher, I can pass you along into the right hands for those final steps. The ultimate goal is to connect your words with readers who want to learn from you.
If you are a student, we will keep the editing service ethical. I will not be able to re-write your thoughts or your fundamental structure. For class papers I would assist with grammar, semantics, and sentence structure. I am thrilled to discuss the paper via phone conversation to help with more core adjustments and enhancements!
..... about my little world
I am currently a freelance English tutor, freelance writer, and freelance editor residing in the Bern-Deutsch corner of Switzerland. Barn work, hiking, learning and jogging are also great passions of mine. I have really enjoyed working with the book production process, including the new market of e-books, and would like to help you bring your book from a sketched or chaotic manuscript all the way to its excellent, printed end.
..... about costs
Contact me to inquire about hourly rates or sliding scale options.
I'll ask to briefly view your manuscript
so that I can give you a time and cost estimate.
