Editing Fields & Genres

Academic Nonfiction

As an educated generalist, I am a highly capable editor in fields across the humanities and social sciences, including cultural studies, history, literary studies, religion, education, and psychology. I have content specialization in anthropology, art history, Japanese studies (art, literature, history, and religion, especially premodern), museum studies, and sociology. As a bilingual (English and Japanese), I am adept at editing the writing of EFL authors. I also read and translate classical Japanese and edit translations from both modern and classical Japanese. 

General Nonfiction

My nonfiction book projects have included the genres of memoir, self-help, business and management, art and photography, and travel. For organizational reports and communications, I edit especially in education and leadership. Beyond these specific fields, I copyedit and proofread a broad range of materials. Send me a message to find out if your project falls within my editing fields.
