Copyediting to help you make a great first impression

Reward the hard work you put into your book, article, memoir, or academic thesis or dissertation with the confidence that comes with knowing it's both error-free and a pleasure to read.

  • Once your writing is out of your hands, it will speak for you. My proofreading and copy editing -- and, if you need it, content editing -- will help you make the best first impression on your readers.

  • Anxious about a deadline? Just alert me to it, and it will become my priority.

  • Are you writing in the physical or social sciences? Put the draft of your manuscript in the hands of someone who has edited many manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals in both cultures.

  • If your English is not native, let an empathetic editor remove the tell-tale signs that distract the reader from your message.

What does your writing project need? Let's find out together: (718) 565-9452


Acknowledgements of Editorial Assistance

William J. Ledger, Team of Destiny: Princeton Football’s Undefeated 1951 Season (New York, Ink, Inc., 2015). “. . . Anthony Flood . . . ransacked the online archives of The Daily Princetonian and other publications in order to check facts of which I often had only a hazy memory, not to mention the scores of the games I write about and their wider American historical context. Tony . . . has a command of written English that is, by today’s standards, uncommon, and by applying it to my drafts, helped me produce a far more readable manuscript, and for that I am grateful to him.”
