Let's discover your editing needs and lead your product into a better position for publication. I am interested in helping those who love to write make sure their end product is a beautiful piece of art.
When we go through my Signature Process, we will identify the project details so the result is exactly what you want and need for your project. We will communicate throughout the process so you know where your project stands, and I will submit the best work possible.
✔️ Editorial assessment
I ask a lot of questions and read the work as if I am just a regular reader, trying to learn something new. It is key in my strategy to keep the author's voice as much as possible.
MY EXPERIENCE: I worked at a newspaper for eight years, improving my skills along the way under many esteemed journalists. I then began a career in publishing, where I edited and organized a variety of publications, such as reports, college textbooks, testbanks, and science, law, and business books.
I have experience with copywriting and social media management, overseeing 10+ accounts for a media company. This work includes: social media copy; blog and website copy; email marketing copy; ghostwriting; as well as editing and design decisions.
I have two B.A. degrees in journalism and international studies, with minors in English and Italian.
