M.A., English, Oxford University; A.B., English, Princeton University

All good writing is essentially storytelling. No matter what you’re writing—a thesis, a chapter, a report, a biography, a proposal, a novel, a poem—successful communication depends on understanding your reader’s needs and developing your ideas along a single, clear, sustained line of thought. I specialize in developmental editing of memoirs and literary projects, but the storytelling model applies to every kind of writing. My editorial experience ranges from editing the memoirs of a real-estate mogul to annotating the plays in The Norton Anthology of Drama to copyediting the last three editions of The Norton Introduction to Literature.

Ph.D., history of religions, University of Chicago; B.A., religion, Bard College

Clear academic writing is a pleasure to read. I ensure that the dissertation committee member, acquisitions editor, or peer reviewer who reads your work can engage with your ideas, rather than stumbling over errors of grammar or phrasing.

I work with scholars in the humanities and social sciences, and am especially conversant with history, anthropology, religion, critical theory, and Spanish literature and culture. I’ve edited dissertations, student papers, and journal articles. I’ve also worked on local and regional histories and K–12 textbooks, and served as a researcher and script editor for a documentary filmmaker. Attuned to the differences among audiences, I can help you make your writing more accessible and attractive to a broader readership, without sacrificing complexity of thought.

B.A., English, Goucher College

I have spent 20 years in book and magazine publishing—as editor, (textbook) author, administrator, copywriter, graphic designer, and business writer—which has given me firsthand knowledge of virtually every phase of the bookmaking process and the requirements of a first-rate narrative. I also write and critique fiction. Clarity of thought and simplicity of expression are my paramount goals; thorough copyediting is central to achieving both. Recent editorial work includes a book on 19th-century labor law, a JHU doctoral dissertation on trade in the early Atlantic world, and MIT theses on environmental retrofitting in commercial real estate and on deregulation of the telecommunications industry. I am a singer of classical music and a sailor with a fascination for knots.
