I am a nonfiction developmental editor and copyeditor. I take projects in social & behavioral sciences as well as in the humanities. I offer flexible pricing policy and individual approach to accommodate clients’ needs.
Although I started freelancing in November 2021, my experience working with nonfiction texts is much longer than that. Between March 2019 and May 2022, I edited an online academic publication Journal of Media Literacy Education. In this capacity, I honed my skills of polishing academic articles written in the APA 7 style (note: I am open to working with other styles as well). I am currently a reviewer for the publishing house McGraw Hill as part of their World Languages team (I speak Russian, English, Spanish, German, and French).
For over ten years now, I have been an interdisciplinary scholar. I have two Ph.D. degrees: one from St. Petersburg State University, Russia (in Cultural Studies) and the second one from Temple University, Philadelphia (in Media and Communication). In my explorations of society and the human condition, I draw on a variety of fields, including sociology, psychology, philosophy, anthropology, history, education, and linguistics. Last but not least, I am myself a nonfiction writer. My first print book Media is us: Understanding communication and moving beyond blame (Rowman & Littlefield) was published in 2021. I am now working on three hypertext projects dedicated to issues of meaning, power, and polarization.
I enjoy helping authors to make their writing coherent and concise. You can find out more about me on my personal website. Please fill out the contact form to book a FREE CONSULTATION CALL. I look forward to hearing from you! 🙂
