My freelance business includes being on retainer as an editor for multiple publications. Currently, I edit Yachting, Yachts International, Soundings and Angler’s Journal magazines, doing everything from top-level structural edits to nit-picky proofreading. My background as a staff copy editor, metro editor and executive editor in newspapers and magazines gives me a strong skill set for various kinds of editing, whether a publication needs wholesale rewriting or copy tweaks to go from good to great.
I also have done a handful of book-editing projects, which I enjoy. I’m familiar with Chicago style for books, and I work daily with Associated Press style for newspapers and magazines (along with publication-specific stylebooks).
