Let us edit it before you publish it

 So, that is the main reason for this; more about my business and, especially, about myself.   

I have over 30 years experience in writing, proofreading, teaching, play writing, and theatre. My experience has been in editing/ proofreading my high school literary magazines, member and officer in our creative writing club, and page editor for my high school yearbook. In college I was a feature and entertainment reporter, editor, proofreader, and any other jobs which are needed to put a scholastic weekly to bed. (Remember “blue pencil” copies?)   

With that experience and urgings from my wife and friends, I have decided to embark on this new business venture. I am searching for clients who have need of any of my  editing services. This is a freelance, start-up business, but I promise to deliver a timely and professional product.   

So far, under  Tilden Editing Services, I have proofread individual chapters from longer series’ of books on a pro bono basis. I have recently completed my first “for pay” job, and expect to be seeing the corrected manuscript of that soon.   

Contact me here if you or anyone you  know is interested in becoming a client of Tilden Editing Services.   


About Wayne

While I don't claim to be any wiser than the next guy, I do want to write blogs which will make you think. Therefore, I try to put a lot of thought into each one and give you room to ponder and ruminate on the topic(s) I write. As you read, I invite you to comment on what I have written about. My word is NEVER the final word on anything - regardless of what I'd like to think - and I'm always willing to hear comment and feedback. With all that having been said; Let's read, let's write. Blessings, >Wayne View all posts by Wayne

    As an ex-typesetter I saw what desktop publishing did to a part of the reproduction industry. Now everyone and their mother thought they were “typesetters” and the average quality went down. Not that many people seemed to notice.

    Between the types of computer programs that exist and somebody’s “friend” reading over their writings …. how do you convince people that they really DO need professional help?

    English (structure and spelling) is not my strongest suit and I see many glaring errors. The more errors, the less confidence I have in what I’m reading. Personally, I’m always accused of dangling my participles. Ha! Ha!
