Do you need to hire a freelance editor to help with your writing?
I am a Philadelphia-based professional editor and proofreader with over 12 years of experience. I have been a freelance editor specializing in academic writing for the past 6 years.
What sets me apart from other freelance editors?
Not only do I have experience editing all sorts of documents, I also hold a graduate degree from an Ivy League school. My Masters degree in Adult Literacy from UPenn plus my training in writing center pedagogy means that I am an expert in helping writers produce their best writing.
I also work in academia, so I have firsthand knowledge of discipline conventions and academic styles of writing. Unlike other editors, I don’t just know good writing when I see it and work to make a manuscript better, I also understand the common struggles of adult writers and can give you helpful feedback along the way.
My expertise means I can edit for both well-written, precise text and higher-order concerns — providing feedback on your argument, organization, evidence, and more.
