Academic, nonfiction, curriculum, training and teaching materials, inclusive language
I have taught writing and rhetoric at the university level for twenty years, edited an academic journal for six years, and am currently co-editor of an academic book series. In addition, I have published two books, two edited collections, and over two dozen articles and book chapters. As an editor, my goal is to help writers find the best version of their writing by focusing on clarity, consistency, correctness and conciseness. I understand that editing requires balancing a writer's message with audience expectations. To achieve this balance, I concentrate on words, sentences, grammar and style, formatting, organization, and overall purpose of a text. I can work with any style guide (most familiar with MLA and Chicago).
