Editing

Throughout my career, I have worked on numerous content editing, copy-editing, proofreading, and fact-checking projects for national and regional consumer magazines, as well as for children’s and adult nonfiction book publishers.

Here are some of the services I can provide to you:

  • Content editing: If you’ve already got copy written (perhaps by multiple authors), I can be an objective second eye to ensure the copy is clear and adheres to your organization’s editorial style and branding messages.
  • Proofreading and copy-editing: I am known for my excellent attention to detail and I am a stickler for consistency. I can proofread or copy-edit your print or digital publications to help make them error-free.
  • Fact-checking: Getting the facts right helps your audience trust your brand and maintain a positive impression of your brand.  I can confirm you’ve got the correct URLs, names, dates, details, and more before your publications go to the printer or go live online.

Past Publications I’ve Edited

The following are a few examples of magazines and books that I’ve worked on as a staff or freelance editor, copy editor, or proofreader.
