I’ve been the managing editor or content manager of newspapers, magazines, websites, print and electronic newsletters, and convention show dailies for nearly 20 years. I am well-versed in Associated Press (AP) style, and I attend the American Copy Editors Society conference every year to keep up on the latest editing and style guidelines and grammar rules.
I specialize in:
I am available to proofread magazines, newsletters, brochures, annual meeting programs, sales catalogs and more. I proofread directly for organizations and associations, as well as for content marketing agencies as they finalize the product for their clients. I can deliver edits via InCopy or pdf mark-ups. Depending on the project, I develop a project fee or charge by the hour for proofreading.
