Graphite Editing
Editor and owner
Cambridge, MA
I am an editor of academic and nonfiction writing. For more than ten years, I have worked with scholars, students, and independent authors at all skill levels and manuscript development to help them sharpen their writing. I have broad intellectual interests—and my editing reflects this. But I especially love working with authors in my fields of expertise: art history, anthropology, Japanese studies, and museum studies. When I'm not editing, I lead skill-building and reflection sessions for medical professionals at the MFA, Boston.
