Ramsey Editorial Services


I line edit, copyedit, proofread, evaluate manuscripts, and developmental edit. I specialize in article and book academic editing and working with authors for whom English is a foreign language.

Your advocate and ally

What is an editor? Someone who corrects your typos and misspellings? Someone who ensures that your manuscript conforms to a house style?

Yes, editors do those things. We’re more, though. A good editor is the writer’s advocate and ally. I’ll help you reach your reader and make their reading experience the best it can be.

Here’s how I can help:

  • About to submit to an academic journal or publisher?

My editing aims for clarity, precision, and concision. I’ll help strengthen your prose and argument. Infelicitous language won’t distract peer-reviewers and acquisitions editors.

  • Have writer’s block?

Bogged down in the details of your article or book? I’ll provide developmental editing and help you re-envision or restructure the project. (I’ll also help you set attainable milestones, and I’ll provide encouragement along the way.)

  • Are you multilingual?

I’ll help you overcome the language barrier to publishing in English.

My goal is to help your writing shine!
