Copy Cat Editing

Find editorial help with your marketing copy or manuscript! I have been delighted to work as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader for 20 years. I copyedit/proofread marketing materials, websites, blog posts, reports, and presentation materials—anything you’ve written and want to ensure is perfect before dispersing—for my corporate clients. And I offer copyediting and production services for publishers. As well as my years as a freelancer, I’ve worked in-house for two publishers, have completed the copyediting certificate program through UC San Diego, and have a master’s-level education. I have expert-level knowledge of Chicago, APA style, and AP style.

I can ensure your writing is smooth, clear, and error-free! Reach out with any questions through my website, and I will respond promptly, or go ahead and book a call with me. I look forward to hearing from you!
