Overview

I have over a decade of fiction and non-fiction editing experience and hold degrees from the University of Cambridge, Duke University, and The New School. I received a Gates Cambridge Scholarship for my academic writing and have published on subjects ranging from contemporary literature to Middle Eastern politics. I am also a published poet and the recipient of a grant from Duke University for an artist residency in Lebanon. My fiction experience includes developmental editing and proofreading for Zarrar Said's debut novel "Pureland," which was published by Harper Collins India. I excel at conceptual and developmental editing as well as line by line editing and proofreading.
