Alexandra Uth - Editor

Expert proofreader with an eye for the little details that help make reading an enjoyable experience.

Overview

A top-notch proofreader bringing a unique perspective to the job. With a background in both editorial and production, I not only look at the words on the page, but also the overall appearance of the page. My experience with the production process enables me to communicate fluently with designers, speeding up the publishing process. By paying attention to the details, I help my clients produce work that is error-free and free of visual distractions.
