Editorial Services

I am a freelance writer and editor based in Colombo, with 20 years of experience in professional editing. I’ve worked with dozens of individual and institutional clients, both in Sri Lanka and internationally, on a wide range of material including grant proposals, technical manuals, academic publications, and fiction.

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.
  • Copy editing & proofreading: I can do a detailed line edit for sentence-level and syntactical improvements.

If you’d like me to edit something for you, please get in touch for a quotation at contact@vajra.me with a sample of your text (at least a page or two), the full word count (estimated if it’s not finalized yet), and what kind of timeframe you’re looking for. Thanks!
