I create long-lasting professional relationships with the publishers who hire me, and I strive to provide quality work.
Before I launched Cypress Editing, I worked for a multipurpose publishing company and an academic publisher. At both jobs, I was responsible for hiring and managing freelancers and checking their work. I know what it’s like to have freelancers back out of projects, not meet your expectations, and submit unsatisfactory work, thus creating more work for your in-house staff.
I’m an experienced editor and management professional, and I will start your project with a full understanding of what you want and I will meet your deadlines. Contact me if you need a reliable, experienced freelancer for any of the following services:
- Project management
- Editorial workflow consulting
I have exceptional knowledge of Chicago, APA, AP, and MLA styles and am able to follow house style guidelines. I have excellent technical knowledge of Microsoft Word, including track changes and the comments feature. I am also familiar with creating, applying, and managing styles and using macros to make for efficient and consistent copyediting. I have experience with Adobe Creative Suite, specifically InCopy, InDesign, and Acrobat Pro. I can learn new applications quickly and have experience using both Macs and PCs.
