  • Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence (2015)



I am an award-winning editor who brings to my work a sharp eye, a keen ear, a deep respect for the author’s vision and the audience’s needs, and a proven ability to work effectively with other stake-holders in order to produce a publication that honours both author and audience with prose that is at once clear, precise, and engaging. My experience includes developmental editing, structural editing, stylistic editing, copy editing, proofreading, and indexing, chiefly in the humanities. Fees for service depend on the nature of the project; I invite email enquiries.
