I know APA 6th ed. better than the back of my hand.
I have over fifteen years of experience editing manuscripts for academic research journals. In this capacity, I edit manuscripts (including references) for APA 6th edition style and English use (for non-native English users). I also proofread all issues prior to publication. I have experience editing academic psychology books, including indexing, as well as editing Master’s theses written by Chinese graduate students for English use.
I am also a fiction writer, with an MFA in Creative Writing from UVic, and have experience workshopping and mentoring writers with their creative projects, mainly in fiction.
