copy editing & proofreading

Rates are by the project (generally ranging from $30-75/hour). Please contact me for a quote.


I have experience copy editing and proofreading a large variety of books, including memoir, fiction, and academic books, as well as academic journals, Sunday school curriculum, and smaller pieces such as news and culture articles for websites such as and The Fix.

I'm an expert in a variety of manuscript styles, including MLA, Chicago, and AP, and I also teach college writing, which adds to my expertise!

I also provide developmental editing for poetry books, with nearly 15 years of experience editing poetry books for

WordFarm press. Please click here for information about poetry editing.
