Sometimes your writing can stand in the way of getting your message across. That’s when a copy editor can help you out. I will read your text and suggest ways to improve the writing—spelling, punctuation, and structure—so your message may become clearer.

Prices vary and depend on the text, whether it demands light, medium, or heavy copy editing.               

Languages offered: Norwegian (bokmål) and English (US).         

Relevant experience:

  • PhD in North American Studies (University of Oslo)
  • Copy editor
  • Textbook author (English)
  • Lecturer in American Studies and American History
  • Supervisor and examiner at BA and MA level
  • Broadcast translator

I have published with Oxford University Press, Fides et Historia, The Journal of American Studies (UK), American Studies in Scandinavia, Aftenposten, Aftenposten Viten, and amerikanskpolitikk.no. Currently, I am finalizing a manuscript to be published with an American university press.
