Amy K. Guenther, PhD

I’m Dr. Amy K. Guenther (she/her), a writing coach and editor, based in Asheville, North Carolina. I have a PhD in Performance as Public Practice (a hybrid program of theatre and performance studies) and a graduate portfolio (minor) in women’s and gender studies from the University of Texas at Austin. As an editor, I specialize in developmental editing and copyediting academic manuscripts. Because performance studies is an interdisciplinary field, I have a working knowledge of several disciplines within the humanities that I frequently draw upon when editing academic manuscripts. I also have ample experience working with ESL, ELL, and multilingual writers. I have been freelance editing since 2019 and have over eight years of experience evaluating undergraduate and graduate student texts. My goals in editing are 1) to help you learn the skills to become a better writer and 2) to help you find and maintain your voice as a writer. I strive to provide mindful and compassionate editing that honors the process as much as the product.
