When life hands you melons | proofreading matters

Just step outside and scan the billboards and public signs, or flip through a magazine and you’ll see them: the dreaded typo; the plural that isn’t; the word swap; the double word; and it continues. I am dedicated to finding those blunders, from the simple to the catastrophic, and ridding them from your transcripts, novels, interviews, menus, brochures, and the like.

Marilyn Zelinsky | proofreading matters

My name is Marilyn Zelinsky. I have a bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Florida, but for the past 30-plus years I have worked in the printing and graphics industry – an extremely deadline-driven environment – as a proofreader, editor, transcriber, typist, and graphic designer.

During that time of intense scrutiny of other people’s work and taking on the responsibility of my own original designs, I was able to hone my skills and become the self-proclaimed champion of the English language I proudly am today.

A flawless document and your deadline are paramount in this business, and with my detail-oriented and focused skill set, I make your commitments my personal goals!
