    Expertise:

    I'm Katie, a versatile writer, editor, and project manager with 15 years of experience. As a trained journalist, I got my start as a newspaper reporter before working as an in-house editor for Pearson Education and Cengage Learning, two of the largest educational publishers. Since 2011, I have been a full-time self-employed writer and editor, working out of my home office in San Francisco.

    I specialize in working with educational publishers and subject matter experts to create educational materials that inspire and inform. I also enjoy helping small businesses craft website and marketing copy that effectively communicates their unique brand.

    Working with me is a collaborative, creative process. From the very beginning, I make a point to tailor my work to best meet the client’s needs. Whether I’m editing, writing, or managing a product, every project begins with a client interview to learn about the project’s goals and desired outcomes. After the initial client interview, I start the project in a clear and organized manner by building a detailed project plan and schedule. My ultimate goal is to deliver a product that makes the client dance, hoot, and holler with happiness.

    I pride myself on client satisfaction and I have built my business based on the referrals of satisfied customers. If you’re excited by the idea of working with professional who takes the time to understand your business, LET’S TALK!

    Services Provided: Author Coaching, Content Editing, Copy Editing, Developmental Editing, Editing, Ghostwriting, Line Editing, Marketing, Technical Writing, Writing

    Expertise: Writing
    From children's books to financial journalism and technical writing, I cover a range of topics, putting a strong emphasis on writing clearly, concisely, and for the audience at hand.

    Development editing
    Taking a look at the big picture, I can help you structure or restructure your writing, ensuring that it unfolds in a logical, interesting, and informative way, includes all of the information that it should, and leaves out anything extraneous or irrelevant. At this stage, we're taking a broad sweep, perhaps developing an outline and considering which features and aspects of the work are required.

    Line editing
    Sentence by sentence, I will read through your writing to ensure that it has the correct tone for your audience and flows smoothly. Your text may require light editing or a heavier, more substantive treatment. I'll look at your word selection, sentence and paragraph structure, use of parallelism and active voice. As I work, I'll mark up your text and comment about the changes I've made and the logic behind them.

    Copyediting
    Although some copyediting may begin at the line editing stage, it is here that I'll take an even closer look at the text. I'll take into account accuracy, formatting, and style. Specifically, I'll look at spelling, grammar, punctuation, jargon, terminology, and semantics. The end result? Copy that is clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent.
