As a freelance editor, I offer my clients a thorough evaluation of manuscripts and other written materials. I examine the material for misspellings, incorrect grammar and awkward phrasing. For your reader to have faith in what you have written, it is extremely important that the facts are accurate. That’s why I consider fact-checking an integral part of the editing process. I’m an inquisitive reader, so I ask a lot of questions of the author helping expand areas of the manuscript that would benefit from further explanation or a more in-depth examination. The types of manuscripts I have edited include: nonfiction book manuscripts, magazine articles, ad copy, employee handbooks, and programs for special events.
