GdS Editorial Services is here to meet your needs. I have more than 25 years of experience in media and journalism, academic publishing, corporate communications, and public and private agencies. My services include line editing (language and paragraph-by-paragraph organization of content, and re-write), copy editing (spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, usage) and developmental editing (structural work, including re-write, on an existing manuscript or development of a new one).
My subject matter expertise is broad, encompassing social science, the humanities, popular culture, social and political issues, health and public health. I am not intimidated by technical material.
I have edited nonfiction books for major trade and academic publishers, including Cambridge University Press, Palgrave Macmillan, and Perseus.
As a senior editor with the New York City Health Department, I edited and wrote publications for the public, health care professionals, and other audiences: scientific and progress reports, brochures, guides, fact sheets, and manuals. The publications provided vital information to literally millions, in New York and beyond.
I work with many style guides -- Chicago, MLA, AP, New York Times, as well as UK (Butcher's/Cambridge). I edit and proofread using Microsoft's "track changes" function and Adobe Acrobat's editing tools.
My expertise includes working with writers who are not native English-speakers. I will ensure that language presents no barriers to getting your book, article, or other writing projects published.
I have a Certificate in Editing from Poynter News University/American Copy Editors Society and am a member of the American Copy Editors Society (ACES).
I also am a published nonfiction author, so I will be sensitive to your style and tone, helping you to say what you want to say as effectively as possible.
