Overview

I’m a writer/editor with 10 years experience editing scholarly books and journal articles in literary studies, art history, and architecture. I worked at the in-house publishing arm of a large cultural institution in Los Angeles as a research assistant, photo and permissions editor, copyeditor, proofreader, production editor, managing editor of a journal, and as an author. I can also handle typesetting and layout/design work up to moderate complexity.

A cross-country family move, childcare problems and technical issues caused John Hicks to miss three successive deadlines. He arranged a substantial refund, but I still have not seen any completed work. I cannot comment on the quality of his work because I haven't received any.
