Freelance Writing, Editing, and Proofreading

Do you need writing for your blog posts or articles? Copyediting or proofreading for your book, newsletter, or even restaurant menu? You’re in the right place!

I’m Soren Henry and my high-quality writing and top-notch editing will help you save time and convey your message with ease.

I specialize in:

What’s a website without content?

I get it, though–you’re too busy, you don’t know how to write, and you don’t even like it.

You need writing that’s headlined and subheadlined, with breaks in the text, bullet points, maybe a few web-optimized pictures, and that’s ready to be dropped into WordPress.

You need writing that isn’t just filler, writing that isn’t afraid of citing sources.

And most of all, you need writing in a tone that matches what your readers expect, something both easy to understand and fun to read so they keep coming back.

The best copyediting is invisible–it allows your content to read smoothly, without removing your voice.

If you’re looking for a copyeditor (like me!), you’re looking for someone who will do all or most of the following things (depending on your time and budget):

  • check for and correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and other mechanical errors
  • edit for appropriate word use and improve sentence flow and syntax
  • make sure the text is consistent–that American or British English is used, but not both, that Central Intelligence Agency isn’t abbreviated to CIA on one page, but C.I.A on another, etc.
  • flag statements that are potentially factually incorrect
  • call to the author’s attention extended quotes, charts, images, or other material that should have permission to be reprinted (helping you avoid legal liability)
  • work with you to make sure your prose can be the best that it can be

Your document has already been written, edited, and formatted, and is ready for the last stage in the editing process. It needs a final set of eyes to catch any missed, egregious errors in grammar, formatting, spelling, and punctuation.

If you’re not sure whether you want copyediting or proofreading done, consider your budget constraints, time constraints, and the extent of editing the document has already received.

Your content sounds okay, but is just passable; you think it could be better worded, or that the flow could be improved. Perhaps it doesn’t strike the tone you want to achieve. Maybe you’re an ESL writer and don’t quite have the grasp of English to express yourself as you would like.

You’ve no real idea how to change it, though, and you’re willing to have someone else come in and re-do it for you, maintaining your message, but executing it better.

Have something else in mind? From press releases to course content, I’m flexible. If you have another idea for a project, let’s get in touch.

I write passionately (but not exclusively) about:

  • Technology and Geek Culture (from Android apps, to WordPress plugins, to video games)
  • Travel and Language Learning (having lived in Spain and Japan and studied Latin, Japanese, and Spanish for several years)
  • Personal Finance
  • Alternative Health and Eco-Friendly Living
  • Introversion and the Highly-Sensitive Experience
