hire me

I’m a versatile copy editor working across genres, subjects, and scales to make your writing more effective.

About Elizabeth. I’m an editor, researcher, and Ph.D. who loves clear writing. Previously, I taught college writing courses in New York City for eight years, and I am certified in Professional Technical Writing. I love working on projects related to critical race theory, feminism and gender, public education, and the arts.

Why hire an editor? Editors can make multi-authored works cohere; help better convey strong ideas in print; take care of the details for you; and help you reach the audiences you care about.

For projects large or small, I’ll stay true to your style and deliver compassionate edits on deadline, drawing from my fifteen years of experience. My clients appreciate my intuition, expertise, and prompt service.

I’m available for:

   ⌯ proofreading
   ⌯ copy edits
   ⌯ line edits
   ⌯ reference work
   ⌯ research and fact-checking.

My specialties include:

   ⌯ copy editing technical work (including APA edits)
   ⌯ line editing advanced drafts of nonfiction prose
   ⌯ refining reports, handbooks, and manuals
   ⌯ advising on best practices for scholarly citations.

Drop me a line and let me know how I can help.
