Structure/Content Revision:

Early in the writing/brainstorming process and need help with deciding what should be included, the organization of an early draft, or can’t quite put your finger on what’s missing? Structure and content revisions come in at the beginning of your writing process. We can help you brainstorm or outline that early draft before it exists and then suggest revisions to your writing to identify missing information or help with the overall organization. Use content and structure revising to ensure concise writing with all the information your readers need, and nothing they don’t.

Submit your draft for revision.

Line Editing:

In the late stages of writing and need fresh eyes to check for grammar and typos? Line editing gets you a fresh pair of eyes to make sure that each paragraph looks, and reads, its best. Use editing to drop your word count and catch those mistakes that will distract the reader from your writing.

I am a microbiologist with a passion for making science accessible. I hope to use my background in communications and higher education to help make scientific concepts more easily understood and make the academy more inclusive to future scientists from all backgrounds.
