SunScribe Editorial - Sunny Parsons

“This is the sort of English up with which I will not put.”
—attributed to Winston Churchill

SunScribe Editorial offers copyediting, online content editing, technical editing and proofreading services with the knowledge that the English language is not stagnant but ever evolving. Some rules do apply, however.

I have a particular talent for wrangling wayward words into coherence, even eloquence, without breaking their spirit.

My sharp eye for detail allows me to zero in on inconsistencies in a written piece’s facts, grammar, spelling, style and formatting.

I am well versed in The Associated Press Stylebook and The Chicago Manual of Style, and can adapt seamlessly to in-house style guides.

A former content editor for a Web development company, I’m also practiced in using content management systems.
