What I do:

Keen Eye LLC helps anyone who has written ensure that the words they have written are clear, correct and concise.

Copyediting

I edit all forms of written communication ensuring clarity, coherency, consistency, and correctness.

Aside from grammar, spelling and consistency, I also check that any citations, dates, tables or references are correct.  My goal is to help you have a stellar document that communicates your knowledge accurately.

For all who have written:

As I read your writing, I will fix grammar and spelling errors, but I’m also on the lookout for consistency errors, sentences that might cause confusion, and I make sure your writing is consistent. When I find an inconsistency, I write a query (which is a fancy term for making a comment) about the issue. For works of more than a few pages, I will also create a style sheet to track decisions.

I use Microsoft Word and track changes; other platforms are available. I default to the Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary for style and spelling, though we can discuss the use of other sources.

Rates

My rates fall within the Editorial Freelance Association’s recommendations for Basic, Heavy and Website copyediting.

Estimates:

I provide estimates for all jobs. I use a 500-word sample of your piece to determine an estimate of the time your piece will take to be copyedited, from that estimate will come my rate.
