I have a broad range of experience with proofreading, light to heavy copyediting, and developmental editing across a wide variety of industries and styles, including fiction, trade books, memoir, academic journals, online media, marketing copy, and grant proposals.
Hiring: I've written and evaluated edit tests, trained new editors, supervised onboarding processes, and managed up to 15 writers simultaneously.
Coaching: I particularly enjoy collaborating with authors to fine-tune their copy while maintaining the autonomy of their voice and individual strengths. Coaching writers can be a delicate process, and I have a knack for the diplomacy required to make it painless and productive.
Branding and Marketing: I have extensive experience developing and writing house style guides, both from scratch and as part of ongoing branding and marketing strategies.
