Editorial services

I work on books at all stages: conceptualizing, pitching, development, and hands-on editing. I also edit shorter works for publication in popular and specialized media. For academic writers, I’ve edited  dissertations, scholarly articles, book chapters, and pieces for wider readership. I’ve also worked with clients in many fields on job, grant, scholarship, fellowship, and internship applications. I have considerable experience working with non-native English speakers writing in English.

Below you’ll find books/book chapters I’ve edited in a freelance capacity.
