Rachael Manser

I have a diverse background in the publishing industry and have over three years of experience working for small publishing presses, local newspapers, literary journals, and online magazines and blogs. I mainly work with the Chicago Manual of Style and can adapt easily to various house style guides. I have an eye for detail and organization within both small and large works, and I enjoy improving overall structure and flow of a book or essay, as well as digging into each paragraph and sentence to make sure your work is clear, cohesive, and audience-friendly.
