Will Solomon

Will Solomon – Editor

Experienced, meticulous book editor, available for proofreading, copyediting, and developmental editing.

Overview

I have worked for about five years as a full-time freelance journalist and copywriter, and three years as a book editor—and have been taking on short editing projects for nearly a decade. When it comes to longer-form writing, I specialize in varied nonfiction, including personal and critical essay, memoir, self-help and how-to, and religion and spirituality. This said, I'm always open to new genres and projects.


My ethos as an editor is to hone and strengthen the writer's unique voice. As much as possible, I don't seek to rewrite; rather, I look for ways to allow the writer express him/herself more naturally and effectively. I always approach each book and author individually, rather than following a template, as different authors and subject matter call for different approaches. Above all, I am always willing to closely communicate on any feedback, problem areas, and other concerns.


I offer proofreading, copyediting, and developmental editing. If you're looking for a combination, or something more atypical, don't hesitate to ask!
