What are my credentials?
I graduated from the University of North Texas. I got a BA in English – Creative Writing with a minor in psychology and a certificate in technical writing.
I’m a member of ACES: The Society for Editing. Through them and Poynter News University, I got the Poynter ACES Certiﬁcate in Editing certificate.
Now, I’m a copy editor and proofreader for Unsolicited Press. I’m also working towards a copy editing certificate at the University of California, San Diego to further continue my studies.
IF I CAN ONLY AFFORD ONE service, WHICH SHOULD I GET?
Many writers think this over all the time. It honestly depends on which one you feel more comfortable with. Copy editing is more of a ruff edit that brings your writing to a new level. However, if you’re worried about grammar mistakes or any finer details, proofreading could be your way to go. It depends on the writer.
