Welcome to edit119 editorial service!


So, you’re looking for an editor.  Don’t take chances with someone who might be able to do the job.  Let ~Edit 119 help~you improve your written communication.  I have over thirty years industry experience in law and academia with international and local clients.

Editors serve the needs of three communities – the author, the publisher, and the reader. Editing is a craft and should not be confused with the competencies involved with that of teachers of English.  The editor’s application of the serial comma rule, e.g., runs contrary to what the writer may have been taught at school.

Qualifications:  Experienced with academic editing, technical writing, and various corporate projects. Numerous graduate theses and dissertations edited in various disciplines.  Indexing and referencing using multiple styles – ACS, APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, Vancouver, etc.  Copyediting and proofreading services also offered.
