Kingmaker Freelance

Teammate: Parisa Syed, Associate Editor (Health)

Link to shop: https://www.kingmakerfreelancing.com/

Inside scoop: I’ve learned a lot about editing since graduating college. The most important lesson I’ve learned from my Master’s degree in Publishing is the different types of editing people can do on a book. Developmental editing is my passion–I love working with authors to make sure their characters or their message isn’t lost, their words aren’t compromised, and that I can help them bring out more of their best selves through my careful eye.

Line editing, copyediting, and proofreading are more technical; I focus on grammar, sentence structure, and clarity, and find any inconsistencies in your work. It’s always helpful to have a second eye on your work before you submit it anywhere. And what better person to look it over than a friend!
