Denver, CO, Remote
I am an editor with extensive experience copy editing, fact checking, proofreading, typesetting, and editorial project management. My history includes seven years of in-house work in publishing as well as ten years of freelancing. I focus on client satisfaction through extreme attention to detail, exceptional communication, outstanding customer service, collaborative process, and education.
I specialize in meticulous copy editing and strive to cover the five Cs of editing to make your copy clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent. Copy editing generally covers spelling, punctuation, grammar, terminology and jargon, time lines, and semantics; however, I will work with you to decide what you and your manuscript needs. Light, medium, or heavy edits will be applied depending on your needs. I can use Chicago Manual of Style, Associated Press Stylebook, another style guide of your choice, or your house style. For fiction editing, I am skilled at using a light hand to let the authentic voice of the author reign.
I also offer proofreading, typesetting to exacting standards, and editorial project management services. Contact me for more information.
