headshot of Christina LaVecchiaHelping others to write their best is my passion: I love helping writers tease out intricate meanings, clarify their ideas, and strengthen their own writing voices. With my teaching and publishing background I can assist you in meeting a variety of goals, whether you are looking for someone to proofread your prose, ensure adherence to style guidelines like MLA or APA, transform your writing with large-scale revisions, or lend you other kinds of editorial assistance.

I have worked with documents as long as book manuscripts and as short as personal statements. My clients include business professionals, faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students in a wide variety of fields: architecture, biomedical microelectromechanics, business analytics, classics, finance, information science, linguistics, marketing, medicine, music education, music technology, and rhetoric and composition.

Services include:

  • Medical school, graduate school, and medical residency/fellowship application statements
  • Research articles and academic essays
  • Professional websites or portfolios
  • Cover letters, CVs, and resumes
  • Dissertations
  • Academic book manuscripts
  • and more!

How I can help:

  • Development: find ideas or direction; discover solutions; better understand audience expectations for your writing; fully explain your ideas.
  • Large-scale revision: reimagine something in a big way (e.g., its organization, its focus).
  • Copyediting: fine-tune your prose (e.g., evaluate word choices, reduce wordiness, clarify ideas on the sentence-level) and proofread.
  • Proofreading: ensure precision by examining grammar and punctuation; catch typos and small formatting errors.
  • Reference style adherence: cross-check references (i.e., ensure all in-text citations are listed in the bibliography and all bibliographic items cited in the text); edit citations and bibliographic reference entries for correctness and accuracy; adhere to editorial style (e.g., format headings to adhere with APA guidelines).

Please note: I do not provide ghostwriting for academic work.
