Tara Corpuz – Editor

Indigenous editor with 9+ years in the publishing industry. I am a meticulous copy editor, and I can help with BIPOC characterizations.


I am driven by a love of words, and my main hobby is figuring out how to position those words into an alluring package that gets the point across and leaves you wanting more. In the past, I have worked on a number of projects: cookbooks, textbooks, legal directories, medical journal articles, short stories, novellas, and more.

I am currently interested in working on projects that require a keen eye for copyediting and proofreading. I am also able to use my lived experience as an indigenous person to help you with your characterizations. Do you struggle with wondering if a BIPOC character feels accurate for his/her/their cultural upbringing? Do you want to ensure you don't accidentally culturally misrepresent your BIPOC character? I can help.
