You want your writing to be noticed for your ideas and impact, not your mistakes. Typos, poor grammar, redundancies, misspellings, improper punctuation, and faulty formatting can embarrass you; destroy your credibility; cost you clients, customers, and readers; and jeopardize your livelihood. It’s not only foolish to finalize any print or digital publication or presentation without having a skilled editor or proofreader review it first, it’s also costly.

Writing errors can result in undesirable outcomes. That’s why hiring a skilled editor for content analysis and professional proofreading is so important. As your editor, my goal is to get your writing noticed for your ideas and impact, not your mistakes—without changing your voice.

More than just an eagle eye for grammatical errors, sentence construction, and typos, my copyediting services focus on clarity, coherence, sentence structure, and consistency. I’ll apply a polished finish to your content, offering honest, detailed feedback to help elevate your vision, maintain your voice, and identify ways to enhance the tone or potential of a piece to support your objective.

I also provide proofreading, which focuses on grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling corrections for flawless text.

I enjoy editing business publications, technical documents, digital content, fiction, and nonfiction. If you’ve penned your masterpiece and you’re ready to work with a professional wordsmith to polish your work, reach out to me via my website at t i a r o s s e d i t o r . c o m and let's get started!
