Overview

Hi there! My name is Elizabeth, and I've been a freelance editor ever since my friends started giving me rough drafts of their papers in high school. While the 5-paragraph essay served me well, I have since moved beyond that and am currently an Editorial Assistant at Abrams Books. As a member of the adult editorial division, I've had the opportunity to work with companies like the New York Times and Condé Nast on a wide array of books for our entertainment, fashion, current events, and photography lists. As an EA, I'm also constantly looking at proposals (i.e. I know what a viable proposal sounds like and what a slush pile proposal sounds like). Have an idea for a book but aren't sure how to pitch it? Let's talk. More than anything, I love helping people explore and refine their story. I will gladly be another set of eyes on your work, while gently guiding you to a final product that effectively and beautifully communicates what you want to say.
