Qualifications

Experience

I copy edited and fact-checked print and web news articles and proofed graphics and sports statistics for The Minnesota Daily, one of the largest college newspapers in the US. I am experienced in editing articles related to news, sports, politics, and arts and entertainment.

As a student editorial and production assistant at the University of Minnesota Press, I proofread indexes, e-books, catalogs, and bibliographies for accuracy, formatting, and Chicago and in-house styles.

I was also an editor for student publication Between Cities and the Minnesota Literacy Council’s annual literary journal Journeys.

Freelance work

I worked as a freelance copywriter and editor at WSI Sports, where I updated website copy and edited press releases and the seasonal catalog. I also edited a novel-length manuscript for self-publishing author Spencer Wolf.

Related skills and education

I am familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style, MLA, the Microsoft Manual of Style, and the AP Stylebook and can switch between them at will. I have worked with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign to edit images and design page layouts.

Courses completed at the University of Minnesota include Introduction to Editing; Editing, Critique, and Style; Technical and Professional Writing; Writing with Digital Technologies; and Writing Proposals and Grant Management.
