Editing

As an editor, I take the content you’ve already created in English and help you modify it so you are able to communicate your message to your intended audience and for your intended purpose clearly and effectively. The degree of intervention will depend on the author's fluency in English and their mastery of academic writing conventions in English, among other factors.

Regardless of how much or what kind of editing and collaboration is required, my job is to help you get your message across in a way that will be clear and appropriate to your target reader and context. You can think of me as the bridge between you and your target reader, helping you to connect with each other.

If you are looking for help with specific aspects of your writing or the writing process or you would like an assessment of your strengths and weaknesses or other kind of consultation, please visit the Writing Solutions page.
