Thanks for posting this, Jennifer – it’s very helpful!

I really like the idea of providing an editing sample to demonstrate what a DE involves. I managed to dig up some old writing that I did as a teenager (the quality of which leaves much to be desired!) and I’m currently in the middle of editing that to use as a sample. Given that getting the author’s permission isn’t a problem in this case, I thought I’d just have it freely available on my website for people to download, rather than as something to send privately to potential clients.

Has anyone else done something similar with samples?
