This is an example of an article I copy edited, the red text reflecting changes I made. I typically use Word's TrackChanges feature to make my editing marks, and the red edits are an example of that. At the end of the document I also responded to the author's concerns (her questions are in purple).

This is an example of a style sheet, which I create to accompany every editing project I complete. Style sheets are tailored to each author's work and include guidelines for editing decisions (e.g. if British or American spelling is followed, if the serial comma is used, etc.).

About Me:
I am a recent graduate of Columbia University's Summer Publishing Course and of the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in comparative literature and minors in French and professional editing. I have served numerous writers by working simultaneously as a college writing tutor and as an editorial intern at a publishing consulting and copyediting agency. Captivated by my work whether I edited a financial textbook, a historical romance, or yet another academic essay, I now hope to turn this passion for polishing writing into a career.
