Editing

I secretly love a cumbersome sentence, a half-formed idea, or an overly cluttered layout, because I love collaborating to figure out how to make them shine. Here are some of the editing services I can provide:

Developmental and Line Editing

As the editor of Scholastic’s SuperScience magazine, I worked with a wide variety of writers and told feature stories in 650 words or less. I’ve also edited book-length projects and academic work. I have a keen sense of structure and story logic, I give pointed and thoughtful feedback, and I’m not afraid to cut when necessary to craft energetic and informative prose.

Visual Thinking

I’m experienced at working with designers and photo editors to select powerful images, create informative diagrams, and combine them with text into exciting and accessible layouts. I enjoy using words and images together to tell interesting stories and explain complicated concepts.


Editorial Planning

At the helm of SuperScience, I planned issues and editorial calendars to cover a lively variety of topics and stories while meeting the curriculum needs of an elementary-school classroom. One of my proudest accomplishments was the magazine’s first-ever Gross Issue, which consisted entirely of relevant—and disgusting—science news. I can help you map out projects that cover all your bases with accuracy, excitement, and visual appeal.
