Kristiina Korpus – Editor

I have 7 years of experience working on manga, comics, and graphic novels. I want to champion LGBQTIA+ and BIPOC stories and authors!

Overview

I am a publishing professional with five years of editing experience with graphic novels and manga. Are you developing a book for children, middle grade, or YA audiences? Please reach out and see if we'd be a good fit to work together to bring your book to life! I have spent five years doing layout and edits with InDesign and the Adobe Creative Suite, working hands-on with comic titles to preserve faithful representation of the author's work. I am an expert at working on translated materials and bringing authentic and faithful reading experiences for the target language. If you are an ESL writer or an author looking to have their translation edited, I am well prepared to help you on your manuscript.

I have a soft spot for romances, especially those featuring LGBT+ characters. I consider unconventional love stories and partnerships to be my specialty. I am a very collaborative editor, ready and willing to take and support author's intent while pushing to create a reading experience unique to their title. Having spent five years working on a medium as visual as comics/manga/graphic novels, I've developed feedback skills that translate well to visual learners. I am willing to work with my authors to find an editing and development process that works best for them, which puts them at ease and offers a sense of support to their work.
