Editorial Services

As both a writer and editor, I know that it can take blood, sweat, and tears to prepare a manuscript for publication. I am here to help your editing process run as smooth as possible.

My previous experience in editing includes work with Archipelago Books, Rizzoli New York, Dzanc Books, Mount Island, Midwestern GothicHunger Mountain, Atmosphere Press, and 826michigan. I’ve worked on a broad range of publications: Kindle editions of literary novels, bilingual fiction and poetry anthologies written by children, cookbooks, memoirs, multi-genre literary journals, translated autofiction, and self-published genre fiction. As Managing Editor at Hunger Mountain, I edited short fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and writing for young adults. I worked with award-winning writers and debut writers alike, including Shelly Oria, Rita Banerjee, Destiny Birdsong, Michael Martone, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Carl Phillips, Rosebud Ben-Oni, Jordy Rosenberg, Amy Rose Capetta, Elizabeth Acevedo, and many more.

Whatever it is you need, I will bring a detailed and devoted energy to your project. I edit in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style, and can dive deep into developmental edits, scan the surface for typos, or anything in between.
