Word Hawk Editing, LLC
I’m a full-time freelance editor specializing in developmental/content/substantive editing. I also offer line editing, copyediting, proofreading, and manuscript assessments.
Experience: 9 years editorial in-house (Big Five house); 15 years freelance
My editorial goals are to maintain an author’s voice, content, and intention while enhancing and clarifying the writing. I’ve edited fiction and nonfiction books in numerous disciplines including memoir, prescriptive nonfiction (how-to books and self-help books), biography, sociology, LGBTQIA issues, education, environmentalism, parenting/child development, politics, history, spirituality, children’s nonfiction, general adult fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy. I’ve also developed and edited online ancillaries and test banks. I’m a flexible, communicative, and experienced editor who is happy to work within various budgets. Let’s talk!
