The Clarity Editor

Editing for social science academics

You’ve put incalculable hours into thinking, researching, analyzing, and then writing and revising your work.

Now, you want to entrust your manuscript to someone who can carefully help you shape your writing into its best form.

What I can do for you

I’ve edited and proofread for academics and research institutions and hold a master of international affairs from the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University.

I will help you make sure your document

  • gets your sophisticated ideas across without diluting or “dumbing down”
  • uses clear, uncluttered language
  • is organized logically and convincingly

Come work with an editor who knows the weight of your words (I know not to carelessly change the meaning of your sentences!) and understands rigorous scholarship.

Let me help you make sure your documents are targeted and your messages clear.
