You: someone writing something that could benefit from editing. Me: PhD biologist, compulsive editor of things. I will edit your fic (original or fan), paper, dissertation, whatever. You send me a text file of some flavour, and I will send you back an edited file. Up to 50,000 words, please - if you have something bigger, comment here and we can work that out.
Why: Much like the post below (where I got the idea) I can offer a very specific perspective and advice on certain things. Crime novel that revolves around DNA evidence? Scifi with some sort of crazy evolving virus-thing? I can do that. If it's not fiction - I've done my due diligence in the school trenches, and now I teach people how to write science. Plus, I promise to respond to email faster than your dissertation advisor does!
