Over the last six years, I've copy-edited a variety of dissertations and academic articles within the humanities and sciences, and I've developed a close familiarity with details of grammar and citation styles (as I've worked as both a freelance copy-editor and as the Assistant Director of a university-level writing center). Additionally, I've served as the Editor of a major university's literary journal for four years, copy-editing creative writing and, more recently, full-length novels. I've been freelancing on a full-time basis since August, and I've specialized in editing narrative nonfiction, memoir, and novellas & novels of various genres (including, but not limited to: science fiction, fantasy, romance, paranormal romance, literary fiction, and horror). As a published writer (of academic articles, guest blogs, fiction, poetry, book reviews, and creative nonfiction) and a freelance copy-editor, I've accumulated numerous experiences which translate to a more well-rounded copy-editor and developmental editor. I have a particular interest in literary and scientific writings, and read widely in both fiction and nonfiction, allowing me a wide familiarity with various types of texts and professional expectations from separate academic and professional communities. I've also served as a developmental editor on novels, memoirs, and autobiographies. While I am new to oDesk, I'm working to build a varied portfolio and form lasting working relationships with individuals and companies in need of strong editors. My rates and availability are very flexible depending on the job required, so please query me if interested!
