Editorial Services

I am a freelance writer and editor based in Colombo, with 20 years of experience in professional editing. I’ve worked with hundreds of individual and institutional clients, both internationally and in Sri Lanka, on a wide range of material including articles, research papers, theses, dissertations, books, and other academic work at undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels; reports; grant proposals; technical manuals; short fiction, both individual works and collections; and novels.

In addition to my own published work, I am also a fiction editor for the award-nominated magazine Strange Horizons.

What I can do for you

  • Developmental editing: I can help you clarify, articulate, and express your ideas, and make suggestions for improvement at the level of structure and organization. Depending on your needs, this can be a high-level assessment of your manuscript or a detailed line edit.
  • Copy editing & proofreading: I can review your text and make suggestions for sentence-level and syntactical improvements.

Please get in touch for a quotation at contact@vajra.me with what you’re looking for, your text or a sample with your estimate of the full word count, and what kind of timeframe you’re looking for. Thanks!
