Helping Writers ​
Keep Readers

Martha Stettinius

Copyediting and Proofreading

Even the best writers need copy editors to catch errors that may confuse or frustrate readers. And even the most well-edited material needs a final proof-reading. 

I help you make sure that your writing is clear, concise, and correct. I check all the details
from punctuation and word usage to page formatting and referencesand ask the right questions. I know when to look things up, when to follow the rules, and when to point out that certain rules are flexible or false. I under-stand the importance of restraint and leaving the author's voice intact.

I can copyedit and proofread your document online or on hard copy, following the style manual of your choice and your in-house style guide, if applicable. I use Chicago and AP style but have also studied APA, MLA, and AMA style. For every change I suggest, I can provide a solid explanation. 

Let me put my 25 years of experience as an editor, research assistant, publisher, blogger, and best-selling author to work for you and your readers.
