Copy Editing (500 words or fewer)

25


25 per unit Virtual OK

I will edit your copy of 500 words or fewer. I provide track changes in a Google Doc or Microsoft Word document along with comments and suggestions to improve grammar and flow. I also correct typos, but the focus is on the big picture of what you are trying to say with your piece. If you are having me edit a piece that you hope to submit to a publication, I can also let you know if I think the piece fits. I will correct errors and make suggestions that strengthen your writing without losing your writer's voice.

I have edited novels, cookbooks, blog posts, articles, children's books, essays, and more. I will not rewrite your work, but I will make suggestions for improvement. I am always happy to edit more than 500 words—just order more than one unit, one for each 500 words.

I look forward to working with you to make your writing shine.

Training & Qualifications


I am an experienced freelance writer who also offers editing services. My writing appears on the Huffington Post, Good Men Project, The Talko, and more. I also write blog posts for private clients (small businesses and startups).

Availability & Preferences


My schedule is flexible, but it may take me a few days to answer your message.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Mariana Abeid-McDougall

𝐁𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐥/𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐞, 𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞: * I do not under any circumstances promote MLM products; please do not request my services for this. * I am on Simbi to barter. Please do... not contact me with the intent of funneling me to your paid products. ___ 𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗠𝗲 I'm an experienced freelance writer and editor who loves to meet people, barter, and help others. I'm also an avid traveller, a happily married wife since 2006, and a homeschooling mother of three children born in 2010, 2012, and 2014. I have an extensive background in various fields, as I have been working since 1997 in various jobs, often simultaneously. I have been a lifeguard, an adult swimming lessons instructor, a retail sales clerk, a call centre operator, a teacher, a Registered Kinesiologist, a personal trainer, a writer, an editor, and the list goes on. I also served 7 years in the Canadian Naval Reserves as a military clerk. Aside from my professional experience, my travel experience is also extensive. I've lived in 3 different countries, and our family has had the chance to do some wonderful travelling. Before we had children, my husband and I toured for 2 months around Canada and the US, sightseeing during the day and swing dancing at night (swing dancing is how we met). We cycled 557 kilometers with our kiddos when they were 6, 4, and 2. And we spent 9 months between 2018 and 2019 travelling in an RV all over the US and Canada. I'm interested in a variety of things, and my services on here reflect that. If you've ever heard the term "renaissance soul," "multipotentialite," or "scanner," that's me. I hope that you'll find a service that'll be useful to you among my offerings, and I look forward to trading with you.show more
