As a freelance copy editor, proofreader, and researcher, I provide quality work within a collaborative environment. My job is to ensure clear and concise communication while maintaining your voice. I edit the words, not the writer.



In addition to copy editing both fiction and non-fiction for independent authors, I am experienced in copy editing articles, blogs, web copy, scripts/screenplays, and marketing materials.

With my background in journalism and documentary television production, I bring the added value of research and fact-checking skills to each project.



“I had the pleasure of subcontracting some editorial work to Heather. Her edits were well informed and thoughtful, and she completed the work well within the allotted time frame. I will absolutely work with her again.”

-Ellie Sipila, Founder / Managing Editor, Common Deer Press


“I hired Ms. Kohlmann to do a final proofread before publication. Ms. Kohlmann has a remarkable eye for detail, and my book is a better read because of her. I recommend her work, and have every intention of using her services again for future projects.”

-William Quincy Belle, Independent author


“Heather has been editing articles for Her work is thoughtful, detailed, and meticulous. She brilliantly spots weaker parts of a text and makes constructive revision suggestions that make the articles more clear and easy to follow. She really cares about making the text as good as possible and puts her heart into it. The work is also always delivered on time.”

-Daniel Wyrzykowski, Founder, and


“I recently worked with Heather to copyedit my feature screenplay. She is a professional who pays careful attention to detail, does not hesitate to ask clarifying questions, and—more importantly—completed the work on time. I also appreciated that in addition to catching my grammar mistakes, Heather made helpful suggestions when something was not quite clear. I would definitely leverage her expertise again.”

-Sandra Shearman, Independent screenwriter


Whatever the scope of your editorial needs, I look forward to helping you with your next project!
