Jody Benson – Editor

Knowledgeable editor with experience in traditional publishing (50+ nonfiction books). Master's degree in bioethics and humanities.

Overview

After earning my master's degree in bioethics and humanities, I taught writing as an adjunct instructor. My love of the art and craft of writing led me to begin work as a freelance editor for traditional publishing companies, including Cavendish Square and Rosen. Recently, I have been serving more self-publishing clients who are working on children's books.

With a diverse academic background (English, philosophy, bioethics), I am knowledgeable about a range of topics, especially related to education. I offer clear and insightful notes and feedback for my assessments and copy edit and proofread with eagle-eyed attention to details. My feedback is honest, clear, and generous. I aim to inspire and support writers, especially through the revision process.
