What are your editing workshops like?

After talking with the client, I can develop a program based on your organization’s needs, including best practices presentations, with editing tips and tricks, and editing and proofreading workshops. I can also help your editorial team develop a Style Guide for company-wide usage.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I’ve edited everything from how-to technology papers to novels to autobiographies and written press releases and newsletters for award-winning performers and animal rescue fundraisers alike. No job is too small!

Describe a recent project you are fond of.

I do a lot of volunteer work with animal welfare organizations and wrote a number of press releases and other marketing materials that got picked up by major news outlets for the organization’s first large-scale fundraiser, which netted thousands of dollars.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Generally, clients send me hard copies to mark up and return via mail, or send a Word document that I use the track changes tool to mark up with edits, questions, and comments. Most of our back and forth is via email, or within the document, if the client prefers working in Google Docs. Otherwise, I generally set up a phone call to discuss anything in detail. Clients are typically billed at the completion of the project, or monthly or bi-monthly, depending on the duration and deadlines associated with the project.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in English from Providence College in Rhode Island, and have worked professionally as a writer, editor, proofreader, and marketing manager in my career, devoting more time to my freelance projects beginning in 2015.
