Scholastic: Young Adult Fiction and Graphic Novels

Since 2015, I have copy edited and proofread books for Scholastic, using the Chicago Manual of Style as the main guide. For some, I sometimes also create style guides based on the author’s preferences. In 2020, I also began copy editing and proofreading graphic novels through Scholastic’s Graphix imprint, which requires the same process in addition to ensuring that there is consistency between panels and imagery. These are some of the titles that I’ve copy edited or proofread over the years.

Seek: Cookbook

Lead copy editor for Seek cookbook, which was compromised of recipes that centered around cricket flour recipes. I worked with the main author to make sure everything was consistent using the Chicago Manual of Style. I also adjusted unclear sentences and cleaned up overly wordy sentences.

Bookbright Media: Academic and Technical Works

Copy edited full academic and technical novels for Bookbright Media. I created style guides unique to each book, author/production editor query sheets, and tag sheets for typesetters. Many needed U.K. style so I used a mix of Oxford and Associated Press Stylebook as guides.
