Copyediting • Proofreading • Author Consulting
Collaborate with a supportive, personable, professional editor.
I’m Anna Reisz, a freelance editor and writer with a background as an educator and librarian. I edit anything from full length novels to educational materials, blog posts, magazines, book proposals, social media copy, and so much more. My editing approach combines attention to detail, a love of the written word, an analytical understanding of both fiction and nonfiction, and a desire to work collaboratively to bring out the best in your writing. Let me help your writing shine!
Comprehensive corrections and suggestions
I will go over your document or manuscript in full, examining closely and editing for grammar, punctuation, usage, spelling, style, wording for clarity, syntax, typos, etc. I’ll include all edits in-line, as well as in-document comments and a clean copy with edits accepted. You will also receive an editorial letter and a style sheet, if appropriate.
This type of edit can apply to all genres of fiction, nonfiction, academic, blog posts, web copy, magazines, articles, essays, short stories, picture books, book proposals, newsletters, training manuals, etc.

Polishing and refining
I will do a full review of your near-completion document, combing for missed typos, grammar and spelling mistakes, formatting issues, and usage. I’ll include all edits in-line, as well as in-document comments and a clean copy with edits accepted. You will also receive an editorial note with any necessary explanations.
This type of edit is intended for content that is in its final draft stage.
