10. From Destiny: "Copy Editing for first 30 pages. I was copy editor of The Birch (an undergraduate journal for Slavic and Eurasian culture at Columbia University), did a short stint of copy editing for the Free Press at University of Southern Maine, and composed communications for staff and donors through Columbia University's development office. This service could also be applied to resumes and cover letters or academic papers. This offering may also come with some content notes, whether you want it or not.
*(If someone really does not have need of copy editing, I can offer a handcrafted jewelry item or knitted accessory for home or person instead).
