Overview

I have been reading and writing for as long as I can remember, and I love copyediting manuscripts, articles, essays, and any other form of the written word. I have edited MA and MFA thesis projects and book projects
for development as well. A book project I edited just got picked up by a major publisher last month!I am currently working on my PhD and would love to pick up some projects to help writing projects come to life and become publishing-ready. I run a literary-arts journal, and I am the final proofreader of that before we send it to print. I taught a high-level grammar class at a NJ State university for many years, and I consider myself not only a grammar expert but a lover of language and words.
