I am very interested in reading material from home and proofreading it. I have a love for novels and would take any work in this field available. I do not have any other experience doing this besides my own purchased novels that I have read. In those novels I have surprisingly found many errors that could have been avoided with someone like me proofreading them before they are published. I have taken Advanced Placement English courses through my highschool years and am currently pursuing an english degree in college.
