As an editor, you know that there's more to being successful in your job than just having editing skills. For example, you need to be able to manage your time and projects efficiently, and you need to know the ins and outs of using Microsoft Word. You need to add even more skills and knowledge to your tool belt if you want to run a thriving freelance editing business. For instance, you need to know about marketing, pricing your services, and paying taxes.

I'm here to help you develop the skills and knowledge and access the resources that will contribute to your success as an editor. The webinars, courses, and other products I offer are based on my 19 years of experience as a professional editor (including both in-house and freelance experience), the research and training I've completed over the years, the courses I've taught in Brigham Young University's editing and publishing program, and the presentations I've given at various conferences and other training events.

Completing the training and using the resources available I offer on this site will help you be more effective and confident in your work. You'll be better prepared to take the next step in your career, whether that be getting a promotion and/or raise at work or making your freelance business more rewarding.

Below, you'll find the training and resources that I'm currently offering. If you don't see training/resources on the topic that you're looking for, send me a message. Training/resources on that subject might be in the works, or I might be able to prepare material on the topic at your request!

About Me

I'm an editor, an author, and a faculty member in the editing and publishing program at Brigham Young University. I was previously a lead editor for the Joseph Smith Papers, and I've owned a writing and editing business since 2006, working with individuals and companies to publish everything from books to dissertations, video scripts, technical manuals, and marketing materials. I love sharing my skills and knowledge with others, whether through teaching and mentoring authors and editors, helping authors get their thoughts on paper, or fine-tuning their writing. My second book, The Freelance Editor’s Handbook, was published in 2021 by the University of California Press.
