peter letzelter – Editor

Savvy, experienced, professional editor specializing in both general interest and academic works.

Overview

I bring broad intellectual and cultural interests to any project, all with a pretty decent sense of humor.


I have edited numerous academic journal submissions, books, reports, and magazine articles for:


• Self-published authors.

• Writers published by, among others: Columbia University Press,

the University of California Press, the University of North Carolina Press, the University of New Mexico Press, Cornell University Press, Doubleday, and W. W. Norton.

• Reference works for Oxford University Press, Scribner & Sons, and Macmillan Reference.

• Submissions to periodicals such as the Berkeley Business Law Journal, the Korea Journal of Buddhist Studies, and the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research.

• Reports for organizations and NGOs such as the Eleanor Crook Foundation, UCLA’s Center For Scholars & Storytellers, Oregon State University’s Sustainable Tourism Lab, and the Self-Represented Litigation Network (SRLN).


I am extremely familiar with several different style guides — especially Chicago and APA — and specialize in the formatting and editing of bibliographies, footnotes, endnotes, citations, reference lists, figures, and tables.


Some of my niches are:


• architecture

• art history

• current events and politics

• environmental issues (climate change, sustainability)

• history

• labor relations (union movement)

• philosophy and religion

• maritime shipping (supply chain)

• sociology

• sports

• technology (artificial intelligence [AI], machine learning [ML], automatic identification systems [AIS], and data analytics)

I cannot recommend Peter highly enough. He had been able to take my work and ensure that it was reviewed and edited thoroughly, and provided me with very clear, insightful views on how to enhance the work of my draft. I very much look forward to working with him in future collaborations where the opportunity arises.

She is working on an interesting and important topic that is intellectually challenging. Still learning the ropes of book publishing but well worth working for.
