Editing

Punch Card

Editing Summary

I have worked as an editor in various capacities since 2004, when I read novel submissions for Grey Line Entertainment. From 2006-2012 I also worked in Quality Assurance (mostly for a web-based marketing agency called Genex), which required production pipeline management, proofreading of both copy and design, and simulated user testing. In addition to the work experience below, I have also worked as a contributing editor for Gold Line Press, Watermark Journal, and elsewhere.
