Sarah C Smith
My in-house experience in multiple university press departments (manuscript editorial/project management and rights and permissions) and Masters degree in Publishing from Pace University give me insider knowledge of the academic publishing industry. I know just what editors are looking for when they evaluate a manuscript; equally important, I’m ready to listen to authors and work with their vision for their own book or dissertation.
I work primarily with nonfiction, academic or not, and my specialties are history (esp. environmental, American West and South, religious, military, science, and media), Native studies, biography, and memoir. I also love to work on gender and sexuality studies, food studies, cookbooks, and gardening projects as well.
Whatever stage of writing you’re at—whether you’re looking for an editor to smooth out each sentence or a proofreader to take a magnifying glass to every last detail before you send your work off to the presses—I’d love to hear from you! Stop by my website or send me an email to learn more about the editorial services I offer.
