Editing

I am a meticulous editor with an eye for detail and accuracy and the ability to juggle multiple projects while meeting tight deadlines. I have extensive experience guiding writers from the initial pitch to the final polishing copy edit. I am fluent in both Chicago Manual of Style and AP Style.
