Proofreading

15


15 per unit - Virtual OK

I will proofread your 250 word/page word or google doc and leave comments in markup. Let me know if you have a different preferred format. You can likely just send me a proposal and the document and we'll go from there unless you have any particular requests. We can do a proposal proportionally based on the length of the document.

I will do everything I can but let me know if you have particular concerns for punctuation, clarity, logic, accessiblity or brevity.

It helps to know the following:
Audience
Purpose
Deadline
Subject Area
Type of Text
Format
Volume (words/characters)

I generally follow the Chicago Manual of Style.

If your text needs deeper reworking of the text, more in the copy editing realm, or is a rush job, we should talk about additional simbi or escalating to someone else. Let me know if you have other questions. Thanks.

Marty was very helpful during our session. (He was also very flexible around my medical appointments.) He provided recommendations on updating my resu...me, and we did some mock interviewing to reframe some of my answers to typical questions. Would be happy to do another deal with him, if needed. Highly recommended! show more

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
