I adore the process of editing. I think of it as helping the author to clarify the story, whether it involves fixing grammar and spelling or asking the writer to consider their choices.

 For me, editing is not about putting my stamp on a work, but about making sure the writer’s words shine. I’ve edited newspapers, books and websites across a variety of subjects.
