Kimberly Laurel

Publish writing you're fearlessly proud of. Kimberly Laurel is a certified copyeditor and proofreader for authors/presses specializing in speculative fiction and scholarly/academic nonfiction.

With emphasis on reader comprehension and editorial transparency, she meticulously tackles each manuscript. She believes in partnering with an author to preserve their voice while ensuring clarity and a polished final product. Her approach includes providing both positive and constructive feedback, with suggested solutions for the latter.

She edits with The Chicago Manual of Style (including bibliographies/notes) and received her editing certification through the University of Washington.

When not helping clients, she’s being dragged down the street by her gigantic dog, attempting to Kondo-ize her life, or collecting oversized mugs from which to drink too much caffeine.
