Mara Kellogg – Editor

I am a meticulous editor with more than six years of experience in fantasy and academic editing. I will always put my clients' needs first.


I am a freelance editor with over six years of experience. While studying English Literature and editing at Brigham Young University, I volunteered on the staff of Leading Edge Magazine, a semi-professional journal of fantasy and science fiction. After I graduated, I was an intern at a local publishing house and proofread many books that were being prepared for publication. I now work at an SEO marketing company as a content editor.

I have edited in a variety of genres, including fantasy and science fiction, academic writing (particularly works related to history and religion), and web content. I am extremely proficient in Chicago, MLA, and AP styles.
