My name is James. I’m an editor, proofreader, and writing coach specializing in nonfiction work, particularly academic and particularly in the humanities, but I’m happy to work on just about anything. I am available for independent writing consultation, editing, and proofreading services. My goal is to help writers express their ideas as clearly and compellingly as possible.

- Developmental editing, substantive editing, content editing
- Line editing
- Chicago footnotes and bibliography support
