I’m Sara. I’m a newly established copy editor and proofreader based in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a BA in English and a German minor from Grand Valley State University. I work primarily with self-publishing authors of speculative and literary fiction and creative nonfiction. My work history ranges from the fields of secondary education and nonprofit to office administration for a small manufacturing company, but I decided to put my love of working with words to better use and began retraining as an editor in January 2018. I expect to complete the University of Chicago Graham School’s editing certificate program in May 2019. I am a member of Aces: The Society for Editing and the Association of Independent Publishing Professionals.
