Writer in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky
I am a freelance writer and editor with a passion for words and several years of experience copy-editing, including having worked under a Professor as an editor/ghostwriter. As this individual was an ESL (English as a second language) writer, I have developed a bit of a specialization in helping those who have difficulty grasping the intricacies of grammar and word choice. Additionally, I worked for 3 years as a Teaching Assistant to two professors, giving me a strong handle on what they're looking for in a finished work. Whether it be short essays, longer research projects, a thesis, or even a dissertation, I'm here to help you polish and present the best possible version of your work while striving to maintain your voice.
I offer numerous services, including:
-Basic Proofreading (Checking for grammar/spelling mistakes only)
-Copy-Editing (Grammar, word choice, sentence structure, overall coherence, and more)
-Detailed Copy-Editing, which includes the above as well as thorough explanations of my changes, suggestions for future writing, etc.
Pricing depends on the service and nature of the work to be edited, but can typically be assumed to be between $0.02 and $0.10 per word. Within reason, these prices will be negotiated on a case to case basis.

"I like your comments and feel that my English is getting better thanks to you." -Dr. Keun-Joo Christine Pae
I look forward to working with you!
