Girton Editorial Consulting

You write it, we right it

Welcome to Girton Editorial Consulting. We take your work and polish it to a brilliant luster with our editorial expertise, honed over years of work in higher education and the entertainment industry.

I’m Irene Montefiore Girton, Ph.D., a Los Angeles-based college professor and freelance editor, and a huge fan of classical music, the outdoors, and reading just about everything. I’ve been editing my own writing and the writing of college students for years, and have also edited novels, technical manuals, and even a daily online news app for clients.

Services: Heavy proofreading — word by word, line by line, spell- and grammar-checking; light fact checking; structural and organizational advice. I do not ghost-write.

Pricing: My rates are comparable to those posted at the website of the Editorial Freelancers Association. I am happy to discuss your project with you and will negotiate individual terms. I promise a maximum 7-day turnaround for projects 25 pages or shorter, and will negotiate a reasonable schedule for longer projects.

Please drop us a line for more information, and to tell us about your work:
