I am an editor, writer, and soon-to-be-former professor of nineteenth-century US literature. I spent more than two decades in the classroom helping students develop their ideas and their prose and many years working with academic authors on journal articles as one of the editors at J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists and Nineteenth-Century Studies. As the author of several academic books and editions, as well as numerous articles, I understand the challenges of writing and placing academic work and am well poised to help clients succeed.
As your editor, I would support you in honing your thinking, clarifying your arguments, and sharpening your prose. I am happy to work on projects at any stage—from conception to completion—and am comfortable in a range of narrative disciplines across the humanities and social sciences for either academic or trade nonfiction audiences. I am arguably best at developmental editing but am also available for line editing, copy editing, and coaching. I have won—and judged— national fellowships and am also available for consultations about application packets.
Please contact me to discuss your project, as well as my availability and rates.
