Hello,
 
I'm Christine.

I develop texts in many capacities including copyediting, proofreading, and writing consulting. While editing and consulting, I ensure that texts of any genre are accurate, consistent, and well-crafted. My top priority is to serve every author's purpose and voice within their own writing process.

Testimonials

Kelly Rynda,

Journeys Coordinator at the Minnesota Literacy Council

Christine brought an excellent attention to detail to her editing work, alerting me to issues she noticed and doing an excellent job of helping us restructure chapters. Her background in editing and writing allowed her to complete large amounts of copyediting and proofreading in a short period of time, in particular editing for clarity. She reliably met all deadlines and effectively collaborated with the editorial team.

Dr. Alexis Easley,

Editor of Victorian

Periodicals Review

As my assistant, she copyedited typescripts of article submissions, reviewed proofs, and managed the journal’s social media presence. In all of these roles, she exceled. She always displayed a keen sense of editorial judgment and a sharp eye for detail. Her social media postings demonstrated advanced skills in creative design as well as her ability to write marketing material for specific literary audiences.

Allyce Amidon,

Production Editor

at 1517 Media

Christine is an exemplary employee. She has a strong attention to detail and is a fast learner. She has been an invaluable assistance over the summer proofing books for me, often catching mistakes other proofers have missed. She is, refreshingly, not afraid to ask questions when she doesn’t understand something and is constantly striving to expand her knowledge base.

Let's Work Together

Have a project that needs copyediting or proofreading? Need an extra pair of hands for a developmental edit? Thinking about working with a writing consultant? Get in touch! I'd love to see how I could help!
