Lauren Mateer - Editor

Pennsylvania

My passion is copy-editing fiction, but I love to edit anything from academic essays to journalistic articles to business materials.

Overview

I am an editor with a background in journalism and publishing. I recently completed my MA in Literature and Publishing at the National University of Ireland, Galway. I have experience editing a range of media from fiction work (both prose and poetry), informational and promotional business materials, academic essays and articles, and journalistic pieces. I am very familiar with AP Style and the Chicago manual, and I adapt easily to house style guides. I am adept at editing a piece to fit a company's identity or to retain an author's style.
