Overview

Hi there!
I'm an editor and proofreader with almost a decade of experience in this field. My career began when I was only 14-years-old, when I started reviewing novels for just $5. This quickly developed into proofreading and both line and development editing. I've also worked as a copywriter, where I worked for companies like Indeed, CopyPress, and TheTalko. Many of my clients, like Elizabeth Hess, have become bestsellers on platforms like Amazon. I have many qualifications, among which are my degrees in English Literature, Editing, and Social Work. I apply these degrees in my editing and copywriting, wherein, I review whether the writing realistically reflects the human experience.
While I love every part of editing, I truly adore helping to ensure that your words remain in your tone and voice. Whether there's a discrepancy in plot or a flaw in character development, I always leave positive and constructive feedback about how we can optimize your writing. Writers make certain promises to their readers, like your description of characters, and I want to help you keep those promises.
When editing, I always provide examples of how you can alter phrases, and my ultimate goal is for you to be proud of your work. My clients typically enjoy receiving in-line feedback and editing, so I always leave comments throughout bodies of work. I also provide you with a document at the end of the project, which details more information about how you can improve the overall plot, characters, tone, etc.
I sincerely hope we get the chance to work together. If not, I wish you the best of days.

Work experience

Editor and Copywriter

Copypress
May, 2021 – April, 2022 (11 months)

When working with Copypress, I completed a variety of projects and tasks. I worked primarily for their Indeed project, wherein, I wrote and edited over 23K words per week. I also collaborated with marketing professionals and other editors to ensure that each article followed SEO regulations and localized grammar.

Editor and Proofreader

Self-employed
May, 2016 – Present (about 6 years)

I started working for myself when I started college. I've always had an intense love for literature, and I hope to always work in this field. I've worked with writers like Elizabeth Hess and Moli Diva, who have developed large followings since we worked together. I'm also about to start a contract with a small publishing company, where I'll both be editing and choosing work for publishing.

Cortney Raymond
Sasha is thorough, polite, and honest. She did a great job reviewing my book in a short amount of time. She also provided invaluable advice to help improve my plot and my characters. I would definitely recommend her to others, and I would work with her again.
