A lifelong reader with a wide variety of interests, I read quickly and thoroughly and have a fine eye for detail. I have a Master’s degree in Fine Art, with a specialization in Art History and Theory. I have taught both ESL and undergraduate art courses.
Speed and accuracy is what I bring to the reading of a text, with a specialization in misused punctuation, common spelling mistakes and translation errors.
I edit wikipedia pages, proofread online fiction and spot the errors on webpages. If you are affiliated with either the Guardian or the CBC, I once again pitch the need for an in-house proofreader… Familiar with the dance between British and American spelling and punctuation that is Canadian English, I can track consistency and style across online content, popular media, academic writing and published books.
What do I review?
Literature, novels, stories, and articles. Writing for publication or self-publication, essays, grant writing, website content, press releases, design text.
