Allison Goldstein

I’m a seasoned academic editor with a passion for fiction/memoir. I will also write virtually anything for hire. I’ve written marketing copy, blog posts, white papers, romance novels, and more. Just ask!

I double-majored at the University of Rochester, graduating Magna Cum Laude with honors in English and Brain & Cognitive Sciences. My English concentration was in Creative Writing.

Publishing Experience
I worked for the global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. for more than six years in both editorial and marketing roles. Consequently, I am especially familiar with the publishing requirements and processes for academic books and journals. As a consultant, I’ve worked with professors and graduate students at Cornell, University of Michigan, University of Massachusetts Boston, University of Colorado Boulder, University of New Mexico, and others.

I serve as secretary on the board of Jersey City Writers (JCW) and founded The Full Story, a JCW subgroup that specifically supports novelists. I’m also a 2:50 marathon runner, 5:43 half ironman triathlete, beginner knitter, and half-decent chocolate chip cookie baker, among other things.

My clients include: individual authors, small businesses, startups, book and journal publishers, nonprofits, students, professors, colleges and universities

My services include: academic editing, manuscript editing, nonfiction editing, fiction editing, educational editing, developmental editing, copyediting, copy editing, line editing, proofreading, rewriting, writing, web content editing, substantive editing, structural editing, ghostwriting, blog writing, newsletter writing, marketing materials
