There are three types of writing I love to read and edit: theoretical, historical and creative.
My experience as an editor and writing coach extends over 25 years. I have worked with authors at all levels of English writing experience, from award-winning novelists and distinguished academics to junior faculty turning their dissertations into books.
I work closely with my authors to achieve a fine symmetry between the technical and artistic aspects of their projects. I am current in methods of textual, visual and historical analysis, continental philosophy, feminist, queer and postcolonial theory and actor-network theory and well read in literature and art. I understand the complexity of thought in scholarly argumentation and the importance of nuance in cultural communication; I am particularly sensitive to the unique challenges of giving voice to non-verbal forms of creative practice.
In addition to my editing practice, I teach undergraduate and graduate university courses in academic and creative writing, modern and contemporary art and theory, philosophy and museology. I hold a PhD in Art History (Northwestern University); I read French fluently.
It would be my pleasure to speak with you about how I can help you communicate your ideas with precision and authority.
