Copy editor / Proofreader

I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader. I provide copy editing and proofreading services to a variety of clients. My Upwork experience includes a long-term contract as a Proofit writing expert providing services to Grammarly clients. I have also worked with book-length fiction and non-fiction, copy editing to Chicago Manual of Style standards. I have copy edited a variety of media, from print marketing materials to app UI texts. Some of my favorite freelance projects have involved copy editing and formatting articles for submission and publication in various academic journals. In the past, I worked on annotation projects for a newspaper database in Australia, where my attention to detail served both my client and myself well. My goal is to establish long term relationships with a few clients who are in need of high-quality copy editing and/or proofreading of their written material, whatever the audience or format. I am constantly expanding my range of skills and am eager to take on new challenges.

Endorsements from past clients

"Catherine is a long-term friend who first became my companion in writing when we were undergraduates together. Working with her over the long haul helped me to internalize the often-byzantine rules proposed (i.e., mandated) by The Chicago Manual of Style. For the past few years, however, she has had so much work from other clients that she cannot accept projects from me. In light of this state of affairs (advantageous for her, vexation for me), I have encouraged her to raise her rates much higher. Whatever she charges, she deserves."
