Kathleen Connors

Kathleen Connors – Editor

I have over 30 years of professional editing experience for top publishers in a wide range of topics and specialize in content development.

Overview

My professional writing has been published by Oxford U Press and other major academic houses, and I have produced numerous books in the humanities with a focus on American history in the 19th-20th centuries (e.g. interdisciplinary artists and Plains Indian accounts) for academic, general, and young audiences. I have an MFA in fiction from Indiana University and can edit a wide range of topics and voices. My academic editing in the last two decades has focused on Information Systems/Technology, business and innovations management, and language learning (e.g. EFL, ETL) largely for senior scholars who publish in major journals. I also have a strong background in religious/spiritual philosophies (including Eastern religion/ culture as well as new age/mysticism/natural medicines) as well as gender/women's studies. Last year I edited two books for Reedsy authors, one on religion and one on sexuality (both of whom gave me top ratings). I can also manage a range of voices, from dark humor to educational instruction and promotional texts.
