Raised Type offers copyediting, proofreading, and editorial consulting services in a wide range of genres, including poetry, fiction, creative and journalistic nonfiction, scholarly monographs and edited collections, resumes, CVs, marketing and development copy, grant proposals, and more. I help writers achieve clarity, economy of expression, and editorial consistency—and there's nothing I love more than helping someone whittle a document down to the required page length or word count.
Visit my About page to learn more about my experience and background as an editor, and check out the Services page to learn more about what kind of editing I offer. You can contact me at any time to discuss your project!
I have experience editing scholarly monographs and dissertations, fiction, poetry, news articles, fundraising and marketing copy, and more. I am comfortable with various style guides, including Chicago, AP, and AAA, and I can quickly adapt to unique house preferences. Please visit my Editing Portfolio page to see published samples of my work.
Copyediting can range from relatively light to intensive, depending on the nature of the project and what stage the manuscript is in. After reviewing a sample of your project, I will work with you to determine what level of editing it needs and what kind of turnaround you can expect.
