Evoke: Words for Hire





Academic, trade, cookbooks


I specialize in indexing and copy-editing academic and trade non-fiction, particularly scholarly monographs and edited volumes, dissertations, and scholarly articles across the social sciences. I also copy edit and index cookbooks. I have additional expertise in styling references, and with crafting embedded indexes.

I have extensive experience with the Chicago Manual Style and American Psychological Association (APA) style, and have worked with a dozen other style and press guides.

I bring a long tenure in academia to my indexing and copy editing, and to your scholarship; my own academic work is highly interdisciplinary. My BA is in World Religions, and I have an MLIS as well as completed MA coursework in Women’s Studies and Religion and doctoral coursework in Religion in America. I have held faculty appointments in LIS, Women's Studies, and Communication Studies.

I edit and index in a wide range of social science disciplines, including political science and international relations, communication studies, religion, environmental studies, economics, information technology, journalism, library science, gender studies, African American studies, Asian American studies, Latin American Studies, Native American studies, and education.

I look forward to discussing how I can help you present your work most effectively.
