About

I am a copy editor with nine years of editing experience. My editorial strengths include: spelling, grammar, flow, style, editing book-length projects and shepherding them through the publication process, and working with non-native speakers of English. Additionally, I am an expert at preparing theses, dissertations, and journal articles for submission. I most commonly work within the humanities and social sciences. Currently, I serve as the editorial assistant and copy editor for Culture, Theory and Critique. I am happy to edit most anything that involves the written word! Though my background is in academia, I have experience (and deeply enjoy) editing fiction projects as well. Please feel free to ask for references or additional information.

About

I have a degree in English Literature and have spent many years editing documents for DoD. I am currently enrolled in a photo editing course that will expand my abilities in the coming months. What makes my business great. Me. I am flexible, smart, people centric, and I get down in the weeds with the details. In my professional life, people say I'm the hardest editor to get past. I can work with any published style manual. I don't know them all, but anything I can find online I can use. I have a dual screen set up that makes it easy to keep the manual, or working copy of a document open on one screen and the original on another making it easy for me to keep things straight and flowing smoothly.

About

I will read/edit first 50 pages for $1 a page. If you like my work, and I feel I can help you make it better, we can then negotiate a fair price for the entire manuscript. I like to work with my clients to insure their voice shines through. I prefer creative work - novels, short stories, poetry, drama - but will do non-fiction if I feel I can be useful. I edit for grammar, organization and content.

About

I have been a writer and editor for over 30 years, focusing mostly on communications, PR, and public affairs in the public broadcasting sector. I do work that I find interesting, such as web copy, book editing, and general writing. I write and edit articles and other works on topics I find extremely compelling, such as the history of espionage, and ones on which I have deep-dive knowledge, including classical music and opera, K-12 education and policy, and American social history and fine arts. Recent Thumbtack projects include a business plan, several speeches, five doctoral dissertations, two novels (one has recently been accepted for publication), and two memoirs. I have done a considerable amount of academic editing, and for six years, served as the assistant English-language editor of the Russian Language Journal, published by the American Council of Teachers of Russian. I have also written and edited annual reports, speeches, talking points, dissertations, and other works, focusing on clarity and accuracy. Most recently, I edited "The Long Process of Development: Building Markets and States in Pre-Industrial England, Spain and Their Colonies," by Jerry F. Hough and Robin Grier (Cambridge University Press), and as a contractor for Ideopia, a hybrid media agency, I wrote product descriptions, SEO, and meta for two websites. The site for Bell Ophthalmic won a Silver Aster Award in July 2015 for its new website/interactive writing. I also have among my clients several Washington, DC embassies and nonprofit organizations. I'm highly proficient in several style sheets, including Chicago Manual of Style, AP Stylebook, AMA Manual of Style, and MLA. I am also a novelist and poet, so can promise a lot of creativity in any assignment, as well. Above all, my goal is to make your work as elegant and finely tuned as possible; your words telling precisely the story you want to share.

About

I'm currently a low residency MFA in Creative Writing student at Fairfield University. I have an undergraduate degree in English and am proficient in grammar and MLA format and have an eye for detail when it comes to editing, proofreading and writing. I read copy and highlight where changes need to be made so the client can make the decision to make said changes of their own volition. Though I'm happy to correct mistakes in English grammar and polish original work, I am not comfortable with ghost writing.

By profession I am a Sr. Editor with more than 20 years experience. I have a BA in English, I am a member of the Society for Technical Communicators and an editor for RK Publishing. Most recently I edited books for published authors Rainy Kirkland and Lester Yocum. I work from the comfort of my home helping authors by editing, acting as a sounding board if asked, and offering assistance in any way they need.To me it's very enjoyable to talk with an author and watch their ideas form. I feel elated once the book is completed and I know I had a part in that work of art. I work with authors via email and telephone so no travelling is involved.
