As a freelancer under the umbrella of my editorial services business, InkSpot Editing, I have edited everything from self-help books, memoirs, dissertations, short stories, scholarly journal articles, and beyond. If it comes in written form, it's likely that I have edited it. I have familiarized myself with several style manuals, including Chicago, MLA, and AP, as well as in-house style guides. I enjoy working with authors of all stripes, and see every opportunity to edit something new as a way to continue to self-educate and broaden my skillset and portfolio. I am an active member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.
I perform quality control editing for Penguin Random House audiobooks. This requires an extremely high level of focus, attention to detail, and knowledge. I flag and note errors in the audio and in the text, such as grammatical mistakes, misreads, mispronunciations, and background noises.
I was a verbal tutor trained and certified to tutor the verbal portions of eight exams. The application process was rigorous, requiring me to take and pass with a high score a condensed version of the SAT and complete writing prompts. As a verbal tutor, I was expected to be a master of grammar, usage, reading comprehension, and writing skills. I helped many kids get into their dream schools, even helping two students earn a perfect score and get into Princeton and Columbia, respectively.
I served as an assistant for Feiwel and Friends and Square Fish, both imprints of Macmillan Kids. I primarily read and evaluated manuscripts, and performed other editorial duties such as slugging manuscripts and writing copy. I worked under Jean Feiwel, one of the most prominent children's books publishers and for whom Feiwel and Friends is named.
I worked as an editorial assistant to Wendy Lamb, of Wendy Lamb Books, a middle-grade and young adult imprint, as well as a stint in the production-editorial department of Fodor's Travel. My duties primarily consisted of reading, evaluating, and writing reports on submissions and active manuscripts for Wendy Lamb, and quality analysis for Fodor's.
I edited a variety of content marketing articles for brands such as Tom's of Maine, Colgate, and Kaplan.
I primarily edited content for the website We Blog the World, which is an international travel and lifestyle website. My main duty was to copy edit and rewrite content submitted by international writers, most of whom were not native English speakers.
