Welcome to my bare-bones website!  My name is Atoshi Chowdhury.  I'm a freelance editor specializing in academic writing. I edit manuscripts of all kinds, including but not limited to journal articles, dissertations, term papers, grant proposals, and application materials for jobs or academic programs (e.g. research statements and personal statements). I'm a native English speaker with a background in mathematics (BA from Princeton, PhD from Stanford). I welcome manuscripts from any field of study. I offer primarily copyediting and line editing services. This means polishing the language at the level of sentences or paragraphs, but not making drastic changes in the content or organization of the text. I'll correct all mechanical errors (spelling, grammar, punctuation, word usage), suggest alterations to improve clarity and style where needed, and make sure that the manuscript follows the conventions of your chosen style manual. For a free up-front price quote, please send your manuscript, along with any special requests or concerns, to afc.editing@gmail.com. I'll do a sample edit (usually 1-2 pages) and get back to you within 24 hours to let you know the price for the whole project. I can work with most file formats, including Word, OpenOffice, Google Docs, PDF, LaTeX, and plain text. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association. My rates are based on the EFA's guidelines (https://www.the-efa.org/rates); they fall within a range of $8-20 per 250-word page, depending on the nature of the text and the turnaround time requested.
