Editorial Portfolio

Thank you for taking an interest in Paper Weight Editing, LLC! I’m excited to be sharing my previous projects with you, and I hope you’ll gain insight into the type of work I do. While your particular type of project may not be listed in this editorial portfolio, rest assured that I’m always open to exploring new horizons. Feel free to contact me to discuss the possibilities!

Please be aware that this list is not exhaustive. Some of my clients prefer to keep their projects confidential; thus, I’ve included only the projects that I’ve received permission to showcase publicly. Also, in the interest of brevity, I have completed a greater number of projects for some clients than I’ve listed here.

As you explore this editorial portfolio, you’ll notice that I’ve included more than just names and titles. I’ve also provided the genre of each project, the editorial tasks I performed, and the style guides I was required to use. Hopefully, these extra tidbits of information will help you determine if I’m the right editor for you!
