Grammar and Formatting Ninja

—Copy Editor | Proofreader | Fiction Editor | Short-form Developmental Editor— I'm a writer and grammar nerd who loves the technicalities of English and literary devices. I offer copyediting, proofreading, and developmental edits. —Some Definitions— • "Proofreading" is correcting technical issues such as grammar, word use, capitalization, punctuation, formatting, citations, and consistency. • "Copyediting" is revising sentences for clarity and flow and, in fiction, literary concerns such as subtext in dialogue, pacing, tone, and light organizational issues (includes proofreading^^). • "Developmental editing" is the deep dive, revising for organization and structure, content, and plot/argument brainstorming and, in fiction, literary concerns such as plotting, characterization, and setting. My experience includes dissertations, fiction manuscripts, and everything in between. Together, we'll showcase your expertise by ensuring your document communicates your message with clarity and dexterity. We'll also bolster your credibility by ensuring your writing is technically flawless. My goal is not to transform your words into what I would say, but rather to excavate and highlight the heart of your message or story. —Expertise— • APA, Chicago, MLA, and AP style guides • Academic documents • Creative manuscripts, both literary and genre-specific • Resumes and business letters • Documents composed by non-native English speakers • United States, United Kingdom, and Canadian English • Prompt (sometimes immediate) responses • Meticulous eye for detail • Emphasis on clear communication and expectations —Qualifications— • Native English speaker • 14+ years of experience copyediting/proofreading over 360 projects • Previous professional copy editor with ProofreadingPal • BA in English literature, creative writing minor, technical English elective focus at UMBC • Flash fiction editor at Barren Magazine • Short stories published in Riggwelter, X-R-A-Y Magazine, and Barren Magazine • College Reading and Learning Association Level II tutoring certification • 2 years of experience tutoring academic/creative writing at college level I can't wait to work with you! *** Review from a client without LinkedIn: "Katie has been editing and proofreading my papers for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program for more than a year now. Under Katie's guidance, I have seen great progress and improvement in my work, and I am so happy that I found Katie as an editor. Katie is able to read my long papers at a very fast pace whenever I request. I can proudly say that my professors are much happier with me now—Katie has helped improve my quality of writing. I would highly recommend Katie to anyone looking for a professional and dedicated editor." —Mary N., MSN, CRN, AGNP

"I had the great pleasure of working with Katherine on my story "Knotted" which was published in Barren Magazine's May 2020 issue. Katherine impressed me with her professionalism, generosity and keen eye for details. I deeply appreciated how comprehensive her editorial process was-from copyediting to proofreading to gauging the emotional resonance of my story. She consistently lead her editorial process with the integrity of my story in mind. Katherine committed to deeply understanding my work, and asked questions that refined and polished the piece. Katherine modeled strategies for looking at my work with fresh eyes. I highly recommend Katherine and plan to personally work with her again on a longer project. I can confidently say she is one of the best editors I have worked with."

"I have worked with Katherine for many years, and she has helped me with a multitude of essays, written projects and applications. Her copy/editing is top notch and grammar impeccable, while simultaneously being very approachable, timely and an all around great person! Without her help I wouldn't have finished, or be finishing, with high grades for my collegiate studies. I would highly recommend Katherine for any copy editing service you want or need!"

"I co-edit a literary journal with Katherine. She's a dynamic editor--sharp-visioned, kind, creative, and reliable. A few times I've reached out to her to help me with documents like cover letters and query letters and she's made them ten times better. I have tons of Ph.D. colleagues but whenever I want an editor or copy editor I call Katie. You should too. James. "
