I work with scholars at any stage of the writing process.

Excellent writing is rarely a solitary act, but professional academic editing is more than having a second pair of eyes to catch grammatical errors. Building on my years as a history professor and an editor, I approach my work as a collaboration to make your scholarly writing the best that it can be. Whether it's a book manuscript, a journal article, a dissertation, or an index, your final product will be demonstrably more polished and effective.

Are you worried that your academic writing will be pushed aside now that the new semester has started? I am offering an online boot camp geared toward professors for the month of October. If you would like more information, email margaret@margaretedits.com. Space is limited

Margaret was a joy to work with. She approaches editing as a collaboration, and her critical lens and candor improved my book markedly.
