Editing

I’ve worked in academic writing, editing, publishing for over fifteen years. Over that time, I’ve participated in every phase of the editorial process, from acquisitions and proposal development to proofreading, indexing, and promotion. I’ve worked with journals including Isis, Earth Sciences History, Journal of American Culture, and Film & History, and with publishers such as Johns Hopkins University Press, Princeton University Press, University of Chicago Press, Pickering & Chatto, and Rowman & Littlefield. This page summarizes my editorial experience.
