Editing

I’ve enjoyed copyediting work in academic, literary, and marketing settings. I provide a careful eye for correcting errors and adjusting unclear copy without sacrificing the writer’s voice. I primarily work with the Chicago Manual of Style, but am also comfortable following MLA, AP, and APA styles. Almost nothing fulfills me more than taking a creator’s work and elevating the content to the best it can be (and correcting serial comma usage).

I currently hold the position of Senior Editor at a nationally recognized inbound marketing company, editing short- and long-form content—including e-books, blog posts, conversion path copy, and social media copy—for clients in industries ranging from marketing to financial services to publishing. In this role, I also maintain our in-house style guide and supervise a great team of freelance copyeditors. My other editing experience includes academic articles in fields such as social work and higher education, informational fliers and program brochures, nonfiction pieces for literary magazine Ecotone, short stories for literary magazine Young Adult Review Network, English translations of Swedish essays, and several novel manuscripts.
