I’ve been working as a freelance editor since January 2007, and have taught writing at the college and university level for over 15 years. I have a Master of Arts degree in English/Creative Writing and a Bachelor of Science in Corrections with a minor in Psychology. I am also an investigator, a trainer and a Qualified Neutral under Rule 114. I write monthly articles for Connections and College Crossings, and my short stories for middle grade and young adult readers have been published in Learning Through History and by Aria Kalsan. I edit hardcopy documents, and electronic documents using Word’s Track Changes tool. My turn around time always meets the deadline. You can find more information about me and my services at www.rlweditorial.com.
