Stephanie Sykes



I’m a well-rounded editor with 21+ years of editing and proofreading experience in publications ranging from newspapers, journals, magazines, and newsletters to manuscripts (fiction and non-fiction), as well as marketing and technical content and Web materials and a myriad of miscellaneous projects on a freelance basis. I have extensive project management and publication experience with a demonstrated ability to identify audience; decipher, fine-tune, and convey message; preserve voice and tone; and fine-tune semantics, grammar, and style. I’m self-employed and looking for new projects, with preferences given to manuscripts and articles.
