Copy editor, Peace and Justice Publications, LLC
After receiving my diploma from CJP at the end of 2009, I was unsure how to best use what I had learned. Because of my family situation I needed to stay in Virginia, and employment options were not plentiful in the Warrenton area. After some consideration I decided to combine my growing understanding of peace and justice issues with my many years’ experience doing editing work. In late 2010 I opened a small Virginia business called Peace and Justice Publications, LLC. I planned to begin by offering copyediting services to writers on topics related to peace and justice, and hope eventually to offer electronic publishing options as well.
So far I have done copyediting on two full-length books, and I love the work. In order to be sure my skills are current, especially for electronic editing, I am presently enrolled in a certificate program through the University of California at San Diego Extension.
I would be happy to hear from anyone who needs assistance in copyediting their short or long works (in English). My contact information is on the web site.
