Diane Szulecki – Editor

I'm an experienced nonfiction editor: I edit books, articles, papers, and more. I'll polish your writing so it stands out from the crowd!

Overview

Hi there! I’m Diane. I’m an editor and writer based in New York City.

I’ve spent the entirety of my career in academic publishing. After years reading, editing, and marketing countless manuscripts, I know the value of polished writing. I love helping my clients make their work impressive and impeccable!

I’ve worked as an editor at Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott, Williams, & Wilkins and Pearson Education, while also freelancing for clients like Rowman & Littlefield and Seatgeek. My skills include editing, proofreading, fact checking, and editorial assessment.

What can you expect from working with me? I'll:

-Create a customized editing plan for your manuscript, so you'll know the specifics beforehand
-Work efficiently
-Keep you updated along the way
-And (most importantly!) make your writing the best it can be--while preserving your voice as author.

Whether you need thorough editing or just a proofread of your work, I'm here to help.

Work experience

Wolters Kluwer Health

I edit, proofread, fact-check, and write copy, articles, and newsletters for the American Journal of Nursing. I'm a point person for our authors. Additionally, I help manage the journal's production process and contribute content to its blog and social media accounts.

Pearson

Feb, 2013 — Apr, 2015 (about 2 years)

I helped develop college-level psychology textbooks, online learning programs, and instructor materials. I worked with authors, project managers, sales representatives, and freelance writers and editors to make sure our publications were of high quality and delivered on time.

Pearson

Apr, 2012 — Apr, 2013 (about 1 year)

I independently managed several large-budget developmental and biological psychology textbooks from revision planning through post-publication. As part of this process, I collaborated with authors during the revision stage, prepared and submitted manuscripts to production, monitored permissions statuses and solved permissions problems, reviewed proofs, acted as a liaison between the editorial and production departments to ensure timely publication of the products and proper spending of budgets. I also planned and managed supplement creation for
all of the titles on my list, including assessments and instructor resources.

Pearson

Jan, 2011 — Apr, 2012 (about 1 year)

I assisted the acquisitions editor in the development of psychology textbooks by commissioning reviews, working with authors on manuscript preparation, writing marketing materials and book appraisals, and conducting analyses of competing markets.
