Brittany Dory, Freelance Editor

Since the formation of Blue Minerva in 2014 I have edited many published works, including scientific and medical journal articles, fashion and current events articles, art reviews, online course material, academic nonfiction, educational essays, novels, and a memoir. I am proficient with the Chicago Manual of Style and have also used APA, AMA, AP, and specialized house style guides. I prefer to work with American English, but I also have experience with Canadian, Australian, and British English. I have extensive experience working with ESL writers.

I have also worked for a small business in the technology sector for the past several years, for which I write and edit technical documentation, training material, flowcharts and graphics, correspondence, website copy, résumés, brochures, contracts, and proposals.
