Retired 28 year newspaper veteran providing editing, proofreading, layout/design services and/or consultation.
I am an experienced freelance writer and editor who has worked with clients from all over the world (Liverpool University Press, Pencraft International Press, Arquos Publishing, The Kennedy Center, Wiley, Greenwood Press, Journal of African Literatures and Cultures, Global Woman Magazine, EuropeUpClose.com and others). I have edited dozens of articles and manuscripts from individual authors and prepared them for publication. I specialize in nonfiction and academic editing. I also have a background in French and English literature and have edited several literary manuscripts and short stories. I look forward to learning more about your project and developing an editorial plan to meet your specific needs. Here's what clients have said about my work: "I enlisted Jen's services in writing a speech, a business course and a book to accompany it. Jen collaborates well and she always kept me informed of her progress via phone, email, and face-to-face meetings. She was an excellent sounding board for my ideas, and knew how to take them, research them and execute them in vibrant and articulate ways. After this first project experience with Jen, I am happy to say I would hire her again for my next business projects." Mary Pat Blake, MBA, Founder and Chief Consultant, Blake Strategic Consulting "Jen has been a travel writer for EuropeUpClose.com for the past year and is considered to be one of our most effective, professional contributors. Jen's strong academic background in European history, art and culture, combined with her extensive European travel, provides her with insights and information that are enthusiastically conveyed to the reader. Her excellent writing skills and well-developed writing style leaves readers informed, inspired and satisfied." Terri Fogarty, Publisher, EuropeUpClose.com "Jen did a great job of editing my forthcoming book, The History of Greed. Her work was praised by both my agent and my publisher (Wiley). She was a pleasure to work with and I hope to use her services again soon." David E.Y. Sarna, Author and Managing Director, Hendon, Stamford, Hill and Co., Inc.
I am a pleasure to work with-- I have technical and people skills-- and I prefer a simple vocabulary to obscure words. No need to bring your dictionary or wonder at my Flesch-Kincaid rating at our first meeting!
I was in desperate need of a proofreader on my first book and Cynthia came through. She was excellent communicating, responsive when I needed to ask questions and the final product was just what I needed. She did not rewrite my work, just made sure things were in the right places. I really appreciated it, and look forward to having her eye on book two.

I enjoy editing and proofreading because I help people realize their vision. I want to help you share your voice with clarity and as much poetry as suits you. My goal is to help you express your story, whether it's a simple business report or an epic tale set in a mythical path. I look for clarity of ideas, as well as grammar and punctuation. I also do a little of fact checking.

Jess is fantastic at what she does! I needed someone to proofread, edit and make suggestions on my website and she not only did all that and more. Within days she had went through my website with a fine tooth comb and emailed me 6 pages of markups. Amazing! After fixing everything, I was able to officially launch my website in absolute confidence. I'm so thankful for the services she provides. TOP NOTCH! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I will be hiring her again for future projects!
I think what makes me special is that I really care about my clients. Everyone seeks out an editor for different reasons; some want to learn to be better writers, others are tired of looking at their own words and need a new set of eyes, and some won't feel that their document is finished until a professional has edited it for them. And I work with my clients to make sure they get what they need from me, whether it's in-depth communication about the kinds of things I'm changing, or whether it's quick turnaround of the highest possible quality, or something else entirely. I'm not working with people because I like to write; I'm doing it because I like helping people with their writing, in the ways they need me.
