Favorite referencing style

Chicago is my preferred style, as it is the standard for most creative writing.

Why I became an editor

After spending many years working on my own creative writing, I realized that I preferred helping others with theirs. It wasn't long before I dived headfirst into courses on developmental editing. This was a tad premature. It would be a few more years, and one baby, before I found Knowadays. I passed their test with distinction on my first try and hopped on board with Proofed. I truly love working with other people's writing and hope to improve on the depth of editing that I do in the future.

Background and experience

I am also a title reviewer, where I help clarify student-submitted questions before they are passed on to be answered.

Why I love proofreading and editing

There's a certain type of satisfaction to hunting down and recognizing errors in writing. More than that, I love that being a proofreader exposes me to reading on a wide variety of subjects.
My favorite subjects will always be creatively oriented: arts and humanities, media and cultural studies, social sciences, education, and social work. I have extensive experience working with MLA and Chicago.
I am a researcher at heart and will enthusiastically dive into any subject or referencing system.

Favorite book:

Some of my recent favorites include “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern, “Ninth House” by Leigh Bardugo, “The City We Became” by N.K. Jemisin, and “The Thousand Doors of January” by Alix E. Harrow.

Hobbies:

I am an avid hobbyist and reader. I like to spend my time painting, knitting, and writing, and I always have a stack of books waiting to be read at my bedside.

Editing tips:

The most helpful thing I learned as a proofreader was looking for independent versus dependent clauses. Once you understand those two, punctuation becomes a lot more intuitive.
