As health professionals, we are in a unique position to be able to change the world. We know a lot, and what we say, write and share with the public can have a profound impact on the people we reach. Many of us are experts in one or more given topics, and we should be sharing our message with others! And we deserve to be regarded as the experts we are! Go forth and heal, as they say!
But you know what really takes away from our image as health experts?
When the brilliant content we publish contains errors in grammar, syntax, punctuation, and spelling.
When our content is inconsistent such as when we capitalize this title but not that title.
When our sentences or paragraphs read awkwardly or contain jargon that no one understands.
I would like to help you secure your position as the expert you are, whether you are a naturopathic doctor, holistic nutritionist, chiropractor, yoga instructor, massage therapist, occupational therapist, medical doctor, or whatever else!
Prior to studying naturopathic medicine, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in English Honours and worked for eleven years in libraries. In other words, I'm a total nerd and a stickler for following the rules! I apply the rules of the English language to your written work so your intelligence, wisdom, and authority can radiate off the written page without any unnecessary distractions that might make you appear, well, less smart (*gulp*).
What is copyediting?
Copyediting is the process of correcting text in terms of:
Copyediting also ensures that the author's idea or concept is clear and easy to understand. While my goal is to ensure your text adheres to basic rules of the English language, I value and honour your individual voice, and do what I can to foster and enhance your unique expression.
What does copyediting cost?
I really want to make this service accessible to everyone, so I charge $0.03 CAD per word. To copyedit a 1000-word document would cost $30.00 CAD.
How does it work?
Using Google Docs, I insert your text and make suggested edits using coloured visual editing tools so it is clear what has been changed. This allows you to easily apply or reject any edits I suggest. It's that simple. All you need to do is let me know what documents need editing. These can include websites, manuscripts, newsletter articles, blog entries, advertisements, social media posts, information brochures, or anything else.
I'm not in Canada. Can you still help me?
I sure can! Everything can be done digitally, which means we do not even need to be in the same country! My services can be used by anyone around the world.
