I work with publishers and independent authors to edit works of nonfiction. I provide support at every stage of the process, from idea creation to developmental editing to copyediting. My clients have included Seven Stories Press, Feminist Press, Seal Press, Flashpoint Press and PM Press.
I worked closely with authors to develop their ideas and hone their manuscripts in preparation for publication. As managing editor, I coordinated the editors, freelancers, and interns who contributed to the execution of the dozens of books published during my tenure. I also wrote cover copy, catalog copy, and publicity materials.
