editing

I’m a freelance editor of long-form and academic nonfiction—essays, books, and dissertations. I have extensive experience at all stages of the editorial process, from high-level development of ideas to line-level scrutiny of style, for both general and technical audiences. I love collaborating with authors and publishers to craft clear, elegant prose.

From 2013 to 2017 I was an editor at Boston Review, a literary and political magazine, where I was fortunate to work on a wide range of subjects and forms—essays and nonfiction book reviews, reporting and political commentary, literary and cultural criticism, fiction, and poetry. One of my commissions was cited as a notable essay in The Best American Essays 2016, edited by Jonathan Franzen.

I’ve also edited and typeset three books published by MIT Press and co-edited a Boston Review chapbook of poetry noted in the New York Times, the latter including work by Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Jorie Graham and then United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera. In 2016 I joined editors from n+1 and Guernica for a panel on “Politics and Prose” in the Periodically Speaking series at the New York Public Library, and I co-taught a class, “How To Talk and Work with Editors,” at Muse and the Marketplace in 2017.

I offer editorial, consulting, and basic typesetting services. I’ve worked with authors of all stripes, including freelance and professional essayists, journalists, graduate students, and academic faculty. To get in touch about your project, use the contact info below.
