Kathleen Connors – Editor

Over 25 years exp in writing, copy editing, book production. Specialty: preparing docs for publication (IT/IS, humanities, creative, EFL)


I have co-produced and edited numerous books. In the last ten years, I've worked largely as a top-tier developmental/content editor for scholars in tech and science, but have worked extensively in the humanities and creative writing fields, as well as education systems (youth, college). I am a meticulous, thorough, flexible, and creative editor with impeccable references. I am also comfortable with most all topics.

Developed a new editing system where virtually all words/sentences added to improve content (outside of standard proofing) are highlighted, with many explained (in the version where Word Trackchanges are hidden) for ease of reading. So this approach also serves as writing tutorial if clients choose this level of editing.

Specialist in 20th C American artists/writers and history. Strong background in 19th-20th C Native American studies (Plains Indians, Arikara & Pawnee Tribes), gender studies, feminist literature, world religions & cultures (Asia, African, Arab, Irish), natural medicine research (Tibetan, Ayurveda, herbal), and new science (quantum thinking, mind/body, speculative physics).

My own creative writing genre is dark humor (soft satire mostly), so I can go there too...
Literary Fiction
English (US)
