Odyssey Editing offers professional copyediting for businesses, organizations, and individuals. I will consider any project, but my specialty is copyediting materials that have an international focus or background. I have copyedited in the corporate, tech start-up, nonprofit, and academic arenas during the last twenty-eight years. I have an eclectic international background and a passion for detailed observation—I’ve studied eight languages, lived in five countries, and traveled to twenty-six countries. I will enhance your message by ensuring that your communications are in excellent form through clarity, conciseness, correctness, and consistency. If you are writing in your second or third language, or your business is involved internationally, has non-native English speakers, or publishes translated materials, I want to help polish your words and allow you to communicate with excellence. I hold a master’s degree in French Language and Literature and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and French.

I primarily use the Chicago Manual of Style. I'm also familiar with AP, MLA, SBL, and Turabian style guides.

I am passionate about words and what they communicate. I look forward to helping you with your copyediting needs.
