I approach editing as an empathetic act that guides writers deeper into their work, so they can realize their vision and release it to the world. I work with a limited number of clients, primarily in creative nonfiction and memoir. Once our work is complete, the author goes on to find a publisher or agent.
Regarding ESL editing–my work with humanities and social science scholars is with interdisciplinary audiences in mind, for example:
Education Pathways: Narratives of Female Academics and Administrators in Ugandan Universities, Draru Mary Cecilia. English-language edit. Doctoral dissertation for the Dept. of Anthropology and Development Studies, Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
Gender, Nation and Religion in European Pilgrimage, Willy Jansen and Catrien Notermans (Ashgate).
Ritual, Media and Conflict, Ronald L. Grimes, Ute Huesken, Udo Simons, and Eric Venbrux (Oxford Ritual Studies Series).
Negotiating Rites, Ute Huesken and Frank Neubert (Oxford Ritual Studies Series).
