Editing / Academic editing

"Your feedback has been a great help and my work has immensely benefited from your comments" (doctoral student regarding his dissertation).

With my rich background, training, and expertise in language and composition, you would be hard-pressed to find a better editor for your academic and other nonfiction materials. My most regular clients are researchers at Harvard University and political science professors. I also work with many graduate students on their theses and dissertations, and with those of the general public inclined to write quality nonfiction.

My extensive training in both language and composition permit me to optimize my clients' writing for maximum audience impact. I examine at all levels, micro to macro, ensuring optimal presentation of your ideas. Specific areas of attention include organizational components such as relevance and ordering of all major and minor parts, structural pieces such as transitions and concluding elements, argument quality including logic, thoroughness and completeness, and presentation components such as flow, tone, voice, phrasing, word choices, and 100% syntactic accuracy.

I believe in preserving the integrity of the author's voice and fine-tuning a text to amplify and clarify that voice. I distill and strengthen ideas by eliminating excess. Owing primarily to my linguistics training and language expertise, I'm also an expert in word count reduction.
