Editorial Services

Hello!  I’m an editor and proofreader living in Madison, Wisconsin. My editing experience includes working with the University of Wisconsin Press, editing English texts for foreign publications and websites, fiction, academic manuscripts, and I’m currently the Encyclopedia Curator for the Ancient History Encyclopedia. I also sneak in some editing for Kunstpedia.

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:
