Susan Culligan

Susan Culligan – Designer

I've been copyediting, typesetting, and designing books and magazines for 20+ years.


As a 20-year veteran in publication production, I have been copyediting, typesetting, designing, and managing a wide range of books and journals in the scientific, technical, medical, software engineering, and project management fields. I've worked onsite and remotely, meeting deadlines and working directly with authors.

I especially enjoy engaging with authors to make their work accurate and elegantly phrased while keeping their voice alive. I've helped a number of authors whose first language is not English and had numerous jobs cleaning up transliterated manuscripts. I work hard to make the experience as enjoyable as possible, and I've been particularly gratified when an author arranges to meet me when traveling to Los Angeles.
