Welcome to KM Baysal Editing.
Do you have an article, manuscript, web page, or other text-based document that needs editing? Take a look at the editing services page to explore the ways in which I can help. I offer reasonable, per-hour rates based on the level of editing needed and scope of the project.
I’m happy to work on a wide range of materials (fiction and non-fiction), and have a special interest in working with self-publishers.
I hold a bachelor of arts degree in English Literature from New York University and a master of arts degree in International Relations from New School University. I have worked in academic and non-profit settings for almost twenty years, formally and informally editing and proofreading various documents: anything from press releases to grant proposals, and everything in between.
My beloved, dog-eared copies of The Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary are never far from my side. I also take every available opportunity to attend copyediting classes and webinars. I am currently a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.
I approach every project with enthusiasm and care; I get a thrill from helping my clients’ work reach its fullest potential. If careful, thoughtful, constructive editing is what you are seeking, look no further.
In my spare time, I am an avid reader and writer of fiction and short stories. I have high hopes for completing my first novel in 2019.
