What I Mean To Say

Editorial Services for Authors


Business Data Expertise for Editors

  • Home

Please note that I am not currently accepting new clients for my editorial services.

As an author, your writing is important to you, whether it's a work of fiction, an academic paper, a magazine article, website copy, or any other text.

My aim as an editorial professional is to make sure that what you mean to say comes across to your readers as clearly as possible.

"It was a great pleasure to work with Maya, everything was so clear and accurate."

Editorial Services for Authors

Whether you're looking for:

  • a proofreader to look over your spelling, grammar, references, and formatting, or
  • a comprehensive copyedit or structural editing for readability, consistency, narrative flow, and style,

check out my Academics and Fiction Authors pages to find out how an editor can give your text the attention it needs to become a polished and professional final product.

Business Data Expertise for Editors

For my fellow self-employed editorial professionals

I created The Editor's Affairs (TEA), an integrated system of Excel tools and business admin expertise, to help you manage your income, expenses, and project data.

The Editor's Affairs (TEA)

“I have been using TEA for months and it is an absolute life-saver! It helps me calculate estimates at the speed of light and keep thorough track of all my hard-earned money. Maya's timesheet also helps me monitor my speed so I can meet deadlines.”
