I aim to edit your copy so it's the cleanest and easiest to read.

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool, honest-to-goodness copy editor. I don't use copy editing software; I use spell check and grammar check as backup only. Usually I click on ignore in grammar check because it's wrong so often.

Real copy editors deliver meticulous, knowledgeable line and substantive editing; know grammar, spelling, punctuation and syntax; and have broad general knowledge. As a lifelong copy editor I can line edit, substantively edit and critique all kinds of writing from advertising to novels. I'm doggedly thorough; some would say persnickety. That's because I care.

One of my clients said, "Linnea is a fabulous editor. She is by far one the best I have worked with. She surpassed all my expectations in editing my articles and delivered more than I asked for."

I can do the same for you. So why not use the copy editor writers turn to?

Work Terms
