Katie Hurst - Editor

Experienced and meticulous copy editor and proofreader who specializes in editing academic writing and nonfiction.

Overview

Reviews (2)

My name is Katie Hurst, and I'm an editor. My job is to work with you to take your writing from “finished” to “polished.” The editorial process can seem daunting after the effort of finishing a big project, so I’m here to offer an experienced and unbiased eye. I have over 8 years' experience editing a wide variety of documents. I mostly work with nonfiction written by academics and business professionals, but have experience with poetry and fiction, too. I’ve worked with large companies as well as with individuals hoping to publish a book, get their doctorates, tweak the English of a research paper, or make a spectacular website. Whether you’re looking for an in-depth critique, an editor to work with long-term, or just a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t make a spelling mistake, I’d love to work with you!

I chose a number of potential editors at Reedsy, and I really liked Katie's profile. Some rejected my request, and were not even polite. A couple never responded. Katie responded with an open mind and a willingness to help and I was thrilled. She graciously took me on and I am learning so much. She is a huge asset to Reedsy. Her guidance will help me get where I need to go with my b...

She was excellent and did the job in the time frame I indicated at the outset. Though I understand that adding pull quotes was not in her job function (I did not know what that was until after the job was done), I wish it was part of her job :-)
