Erin Willard

Working with independent authors and publishers, I correct the pesky spelling, grammar, punctuation, word usage, sentence structure, consistency, and clarity slipups that can divert a reader’s attention from wonderful writing.

My past projects have included copyediting manuscripts of award-winning novels and nonfiction and creative nonfiction books, and I work with a variety of genres, including mystery, historical fiction, adventure, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and memoir, as well as children’s, middle grade, and young adult fiction. My clients are new writers, seasoned professionals, and those who are somewhere in between. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA); ACES, the Society for Editing; and the Association of Independent Publishing Professionals (AIPP); and I am currently serving as co-president of the San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN).
