Brendan McLaughlin - Editor

I have over 10 years of experience as a developmental, line and copy editor for science and public affairs publications.


I'm an editor and writer with a decade of experience in non-profit and science communications. My particular areas of expertise are marine science, climate change, land use, and social justice. I am looking to break into the world of literary and non-fiction book editing, particularly developmental editing.
