Editorial Services

Hello! I’m an editor and proofreader living in Madison, Wisconsin. I’ve been a freelance editor for close to ten years now. My editing experience includes just about all kinds of writing: academic texts, novels, memoirs, short stories, children’s books, websites, journal articles, marketing and business materials, and editing English texts for foreign publications. I use most style guides but prefer The Chicago Manual of Style, and I edit both US and UK English.

I’m passionate about editing. I love working behind the scenes, collaborating with authors to make their writing the best it can be. It may sound corny, but it feels like a calling. Feel free to contact me using the form at the bottom of this page, and I’ll get back to you to discuss your project. I offer the following services:
