Sean M. Kennedy

Copy, line, and developmental editor for media, academic, or activist work (online, print, or multimodal; articles, book chapters, or short books; theses or dissertations). Recent clients include the Museum of Modern Art and PhD candidates in the U.S. and abroad.

With a decade-plus of experience writing and editing content for online/print media in commercial and nonprofit contexts and another decade of teaching and tutoring writing, composition, and literature for diverse college students of all ages in the New York City area, I’m qualified and eager to work on a range of projects. These may include developing self-publishing ventures in both e-book and print form; facilitating the completion of that academic article or chapter; supporting the realization of the novel you’ve always wanted to write; polishing and helping place op-eds or other freelance pieces; or fine-tuning white papers, special reports, grant applications, or campaign content.

Sensitive, culturally competent, open-minded, easygoing but above all else highly respectful and professional. Please reach out with any and all queries. Phone/video consultation, sample edit, and flexible rates, especially for progressive, grassroots, or student clients.

As one client described our work together: “I did not recruit the help I needed until I contacted you, and your talents are revolutionizing how I feel about the possibilities of writing. So grateful.”

I’d be grateful to collaborate with you.



Years in the field: 20
