Hi, My name is Elisabeth Ivey
I am a writer, proofreader, and copy editor.
I started this journey at a young age as an avid reader. Books were my first teacher, and I fell in love with the way that words can transport you into an entirely new reality.
Over time, I noticed that not only did I have a knack for spotting errors in the texts I read, but I really enjoyed it.
This led me to pursue opportunities that allowed me to dip my toes into the world of editing. Pretty soon, I was completely submerged.
In my 7 years of experience, I’ve had the opportunity to proofread and copy edit academic essays and materials, book manuscripts, blog articles, social media posts, visual exhibits, and more. You can find out more about my professional experience by visiting my LinkedIn page here.
I have my B.A. in English and Sociology & Anthropology, and I’ve always found the intersection between these subjects a very fascinating place. It leads me to not only be precise in my language but sensitive in my representation, and I want to share these skills with you as you compose materials to share with others.
In 2020, I took another big step in my editorial journey by taking a proofreading and copy editing course by Phon Baillie with The Art of Proofreading. I’m so glad I did. Now I feel even more confident in my ability to detect errors and areas for improvement, and I look forward to working with you to see how we can make your work shine.
I know how challenging it can be to take a step forward toward a dream or goal, yet I also know how rewarding it can be.
Whether you’re working on a resume, book manuscript, or academic thesis, I want to support you as you take that courageous step!
