About Me

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs,
is making a chore for the reader who reads. – Dr. Seuss

I’m nancy laverty-snider

The love of prose and literary works have been a passion of mine since childhood. I read every series I could get my hands on: Anne of Green Gables, Black Beauty, Nancy Drew, and Little House on the Prairie, to name a few. Fast forward a few years to the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series while in high school (before the movies came out) and (much) later to the Game of Thrones, before its series hit the screens. (George R. R. Martin, I am still waiting for book six!)I have an eye for catching grammar errors, and, quite by accident, I came across an opportunity to train as a proofreader.  What better way to combine what I love to do with also helping others turn that piece of literature into something that is a work of art?! I am a graduate of  Caitlin Pyle’s Proofread Anywhere course, and I look forward to sharing my expertise with you.

Let the reader find that he cannot afford to omit any line of your writing because you have omitted every word that he can spare.  –  Ralph Waldo Emerson.”

My Skills

I proofread for individuals, big & small authors, companies, video scripts, printed publications, and web content. Sometimes I can even help companies build their content strategy, and create their entire new content, workshop material, and marketing. 

I love a challenge, and am always looking to expand my proofreading skills to include all your communications.  Whether it’s a business proposal, document, letter, online content, speech or lecture!  I’m here to help you put your best foot forward, and impress those who read or hear your work.  If someone writes something, I can help make sure it’s polished and ready to be shared with your audience!
