Black Market English Consulting was inspired by a long-held desire to help on an individual level in a way that makes a global impact. The business concept grew from a decades’ combined experience working with both eastern and western intellectual property, cybersecurity, government and marketing firms and professionals in not only a specialist role, but also in an English teaching and editing capacity.
Samantha – Owner, Editor and teacher
I’ve never considered
editing a mere “fixing” job.
To me, editing is much more than that – editing is language engineering. Like roadway engineering, we begin with a goal, and then begin connecting part A to part B and then those parts with parts C and D and so on, in order to reach our end and reduce drive time. Traveling the road should not be a cumbersome experience; we should smooth the ground, remove blockages, and prevent bottlenecks. Time is our most valuable resource. In writing and editing, it’s a similar set of variables. Instead of raw materials like water, sand and gravel, editors work with parts of speech like verbs, adverbs and adjectives to optimize read time. We deploy them intelligently and from within a common sense framework to construct efficient sentences that reduce obstructions and seamlessly guide readers to their destinations. As an editor, I don’t simply paint over a poorly constructed sentence. I rebuild it. I identify the sources of the mess and work not only to untangle it, but also to prevent it.
