Services Available:

I edit with Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) using track changes. If you don’t have access to Word with track changes, we’ll determine what’s compatible for both of us.

I edit Canadian, American, and British English.

If you’re interested in my services, send me a message via the contact page and I’ll try to get back to you within one (1) business day. Please note I don’t work weekends or Ontario-recognized holidays, and maintain regular business hours (9:30-4:30 EST).

And if you’d like to know more about the different types of editing, check out this blog post.
