Editing by Nicki Richards
Copy Editing and Proofreading
It's amazing the tricks our eyes can play on us; even the most advanced writers can miss a typo. By working with me, you will eliminate that possibility.
As your editor, I will diligently read and re-read your work for any spelling, punctuation, or grammar issues (proofreading). I also specialize in restructuring sentences and maximizing word choice to ensure that any messages you're trying to convey don't get lost in awkward phrasing (copy editing). By skillfully utilizing the combination of these two modes of editing, I can make your piece of writing look and sound its absolute best.
My rate is $0.02 (CAD) per word—I take pride in quality work at an affordable price. It is also my goal to make my editing services as accessible as possible, so payment plans that work within your budget are available upon request.
Don't let your readers stumble over unseen errors, pulling them from the wonderful world you're creating.
Errors in non-fiction could cause loss of credibility. Let's work together to make sure that doesn't happen.
Ensure that your school paper doesn't lose valuable marks on things that are as easily fixed as they are missed.
An avid reader and writer in equal measure.
Reading and writing have been twin passions of mine for as long as I can remember. I have years of experience and enjoyment in both fields, and I wholeheartedly believe it makes me a better editor.
When looking at a piece of work, it's incredibly beneficial to be able to examine the coin from both sides. I know as a reader when things become unclear and messages get lost, but as a writer, I also know how to fix them.
I've always had a penchant for editing, and it's something I genuinely enjoy. I have a sharp eye for errors, excellent judgment in correcting them, and over five years' experience doing so. I look forward to working together!
“My golden rule is to publish only what has been put through a professional editor. Nicki fulfills this critical step as her editing is thorough, her comments insightful, and questions always apt. Her skills and talent ensure my stories are well written—ready for the reader. And beyond her technical expertise, it is always easy and a pleasure to work with Nicki.”
