Academic Editorial Services

I polish and proofread for grammar, punctuation, spelling, and typographical errors. I can also provide copy editing, line editing, and developmental editing.

Articles, Journals, Chapter Submissions, Academic Monographs, Book Manuscripts, Proposals, White Papers, Program Evaluations, Writing Samples, Academic Application Materials, Lectures, Job and Grant Application Manuscripts I edit for authors, researchers, and academics in all fields who need their journal-article manuscript polished before submission to US and UK journals, job applications, grant applications, or publishers.

I work with self-publishing and first-time novelists, short story writers, and nonfiction writers as well as established authors who would like to have their manuscripts edited and polished before publication. 

Native and Non-native speakers of English  I edit for researcher-authors who are native and non-native speakers of English.
LaTeX, PDF, Word I offer edits using "tracked changes" in Word or notes in LaTeX or PDF. I give explanations for editorial comments in the margins as often as I can.

Deadlines  I can return manuscripts with edits within four to six weeks after receiving documents. If you need edits back sooner, there will be an additional rush fee.

Payments  I give a specific quote once I see the manuscript and before editorial work has begun. I use a secure invoice system that allows domestic and international payments with credit cards or electronic payments, e-checks, or bank transfers that you would receive as an email link after receiving completed edits.

About Me  I have written and edited grants and web content as the director at a nationally ranked Liberal Arts College. I have worked with the Organization Mondiale pour l'Education Préscolaire (OMEP), the Scandinavia House, the American Scandinavian Foundation (ASF), and the United Nations. In addition to doctoral work, I have an MA in bibliographical studies and have worked on the World Shakespeare Bibliography. I also have an MFA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College. I have worked as an editor for two scholarly journals, publishing houses in NYC, and a belles-lettres press specializing in publishing international authors. I have also worked as an editor for Metro-UN, International Affairs Newspaper.

Let me apply my editorial experience to your written work to help polish and prepare you for publication.

Here are reviews from recent clients:

Saundra is a total pro, and I would highly recommend her for editing. She also possesses a skill almost never seen in creatives - she knows how to deliver criticism and build your self-worth simultaneously.

Very helpful comments...and way ahead of schedule!

Excellent copy editor with a sharp eye and encyclopedic knowledge of English grammar. Adhered to her delivery date, which was early, and maintained proper communication throughout. Highly recommended, will definitely hire again in the future.
