editing

I’m a freelance editor of nonfiction. 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 writers 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 worked on a wide range of forms—feature essays and book reviews, social and political analysis, reporting and opinion columns, 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 of nonfiction published by MIT Press and co-edited a Boston Review chapbook of poetry, noted in the Boston Globe and the New York Times, that includes 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 enjoy working on subjects across the sciences and humanities, and I’ve collaborated with authors of all stripes—from graduate students and freelancers to professional essayists, journalists, and academic faculty.
