Editing involves working closely with the text, to help you, the author, say what you want to say while never losing your ‘voice’. An editor won’t change your style, but can suggest ways to enhance your final product and make it clear, concise and readable.
I’ve edited books, papers, dissertations, biographies and autobiographies, as well as poetry, business information and websites.
