"Words, I've come to learn, are pulleys through time. Portals into other minds. Without words, what remains? Indecipherable customs. Strange rites. Without words, we're history's orphans. Our lives and thoughts erased."

- Alice from "The Word Exchange" by Alena Graedon

At Fox and Flowers Proofreading, I believe everyone puts a piece of themselves into the content they write, even in their professional writing. I ensure every project I work on receives a quality refinement that showcases the content creator as an original writer and a highly knowledgeable specialist in their profession.

I accept a variety of written content to proofread/copy edit, but I have a soft spot for working on manuscripts (digital/paper copy) and book proposals of any genre, as well online content for small-business owners and professional creatives!

So whether you're a local small business owner that just needs a thorough clean-up of any spelling, punctual, capitalizing, typographical, and grammatical error(s) in their business content, or an upcoming author who requires more detail-oriented attention for quality refinement during your editing phase, you can trust me to preserve your unique writing style and your professional reputation with intuitive, relevant and insightful edits.
