Freelance Editing

If you work in the San Francisco Bay Area and need a reliable editor who is well versed in the Chicago Manual of Style, familiar with the challenges of small press publishing, and deeply invested in the printed word, we should connect.

Since 2007, I've served as an editor at nonprofit arts organizations, collaborating with executives, development officers, and even art historians. I also copyedit books by new authors, offering expertise and encouragement along the way.

Allison's instinct for narrative makes her an excellent editor, able to suss out what the author means to say and then effectively communicate how that person can achieve it.

Allison is whip-smart: she is able to understand her audience and an organization's business objectives in record time. In addition to being a first-rate writer (top three I've ever worked with), she adapts with ease to various formats and styles, bringing knowledge of best practices to them all.
