Skyler Watkins – Editor

I am an editor with a specific interest in developmental and copy editing and proofreading.


Having trouble keeping track of details in your manuscript? Dialogue doesn’t seem to flow naturally? The pacing of your plot seems off? I can help with that! As an avid reader who loves to analyze stories, their styles, and their organization, I can offer insight into how modern readers might experience your story and help you develop your work into a compelling end product.

Alternatively, do you need help organizing and polishing an article? Are you looking for clarity in your writing? Good news: I can help with that too! As a junior majoring in English, I have plenty of recent experience in writing articles and clearly-organized essays that smoothly incorporate secondary and primary sources while building up cohesive arguments.
