Don't worry I've done this before! In 2014 I cofounded Dali's Lovechild Literary Magazine, a monthly literary magazine dedicated to "weird fiction" and stories that tell a gritty realistic side of humanity. On Dali's Lovechild I worked as Editor-In-Chief, reading through submissions, choosing selections, and editing the pieces prior to publication.As editor for Dali's Lovechild I developed a keen eye for good stories, and I know what literary magazines are looking out for. Dali's Lovechild ran strong for 2 years before it was ultimately disbanded in August of 2016.
As an editor working for you I would take the same attention to detail and focus that I used on Dali's Lovechild.
As a writer, I have published both fiction and poetry in various literary magazines over the years, and I take the writing and revision process very seriously.

Looking to have something else proofread, such as a manual, menu, nonfiction article, or website? No project is too small.
