Hi, my name is Courtney Dobson. I am a professional non-fiction editor. I value clear and concise writing and my goal is to bring out the best in your writing and help you achieve your professional and organizational goals. As your editor, I will help you produce clean and compelling pieces. I offer a depth of editorial services from developmental editing and copy editing to proofreading, formatting, and consultations.

I edit and format scholarly non-fiction pieces. This includes: reports, white papers, journal articles and PhD theses. I am skilled in the Chicago Manual of Style, APA, Harvard style, and I can follow any journal or in-house style guidelines.

I am prompt, collegial, and have a stellar record of client satisfaction. Former clients include accomplished academics, journalists and directors of non-governmental organizations.

I hold a PhD from the University of Glasgow, Scotland. I have a social sciences and humanities background and experience conducting qualitative research. I am proficient in American, British, and Canadian English.

When I’m not working, I enjoy swimming, running, and travelling.
