Editing

Sit down and have a cup

of coffee. Let’s talk about our writing dreams.

Are you afraid of looking unintelligent because of mistakes in your writing?

Do you have a great idea for a story or a business proposal and want to optimize it for maximum impact?

Whether you’re looking for a quick proofread or an in-depth developmental edit, Stephanie can help take your writing to the next level so that you can achieve your goals.

Stephanie is a certified editor through New York University, where she studied proofreading; copyediting; developmental editing; and scientific, technical, and medical (STM) editing. With more than 20 years of experience, she has worked in journalism, book publishing, online publishing, and marketing. For more than 15 years, she worked in-house for BN.com; Barnes & Noble, Inc.; and Sterling Publishing. She also has longstanding freelance clients, some of whom have gone on to be published in the New York Times and in book form, and she has a passion for working with first-time authors.

Are you worried that working with a professional editor means a lot of nit-picky red pencil marks and someone imposing their voice on your unique style? Stephanie is a published author who understands what it feels like to be on both sides of the editing process. She therefore edits with compassion and generosity. She believes everyone has a story to tell and wants to help you tell it the way only you can. She uses tracked changes to show you all edits she makes, giving you full transparency of her process and putting the power to accept or reject all edits back in your hands. She also uses comment bubbles within the text to suggest places you could expand and go deeper. Along the way, she offers encouragement where she sees a salient point or phrase that is particularly well done because she believes sometimes the best learning tool is understanding where your strengths lie and where you’ve done your best work.

Invest in yourself. For a one-time fee, you’ll receive a finished product that you can publish or distribute indefinitely—meaning you can keep profiting off your investment. Rates and turnaround times vary by project type, editing level, and project length and are in line with the Editorial Freelancers Associations.

Let’s craft beautiful words together.
