Roccisano, Miranda AE

I can give your writing a professional finish, making sure it’s not only readable but concise, targeted, consistent, grammatical, effective, and conforms to specifications. Over the past 20 years I’ve edited a wide range of materials for a wide range of clients. I’ve edited educational and academic materials, fiction and non-fiction. I’ve edited for government, universities, publishers and private individuals, and I have particular experience with copyright. I enjoy helping writers to improve their skills and succeed.
