ONLINE OR PRINT PROJECTS

I consult a variety of manuals, guides and dictionaries. I adapt to your preferences; if you have none, I will make professional recommendations in your best interest. Employing a consistent editorial style, whatever it might be, is a must. Doing so makes editing decisions an easy call. The reality is, editorial style typically meshes a formal style guide with a client’s predilections, audience expectations and brand requirements.

Among the reference materials I call upon:

  • The Associated Press Stylebook  

  • The Chicago Manual of Style

  • Webster's New World College Dictionary

  • Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary

  • Garner's Modern American Usage

  • Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary

SOFTWARE PROFICIENCY
  • Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel

  • Adobe Acrobat Professional (PDFs), InDesign and InCopy
