News4U: writer, editorial intern



Amnet Systems, July 2011-present

Copy and Line Editor

As a remote contractor for a large, independent, multiservice company, I perform both basic copy edits and comprehensive line edits of books. For a copy edit, I correct punctuation and grammar as well as typographical and composition errors while applying Chicago style to a manuscript. In a line edit, I do all of the above, plus I dig deeper into the book to address elements such as plot lines, facts, tone and style, characterization, etc., depending on the genre of the manuscript.
