More About Mindi
I have a BA in English Literature and an MFA in Creative Writing. I have been a creative writer since the day I picked up my first pencil. Proofreading goes hand in hand with that. I have spent the last 8+ years editing the fiction, non-fiction, and poetry of friends, students, and fellow authors. I have also been a tutor for college-level English and writing courses in an online environment for almost 3 years now. As an editor, I believe in providing clear advice in a variety of areas, from offering suggestions to resolve clarity, flow, and grammar issues to correcting spelling and punctuation errors. My job is to help you present your best self in the writing you send out into the world, whether that world consists of school, work, or (if you're like me!) writing for the sheer pleasure of it.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
I enjoy editing all types of documents, from academic essays and research papers (on any subject) to business letters, resumes, and speeches. I'm particularly fond of editing personal statements for academic programs and scholarship applications, as well as creative fiction and non-fiction.
In what subject areas are you an expert?
I have extensive experience with literary analysis/reviews, art history, psychology, creative fiction, creative non-fiction, resume writing, and business writing (including memos, professional emails, and policy manuals). I also enjoy editing scientific research papers as I enjoy an opportunity to learn something new. As a college level writing tutor, I have edited papers for a variety of subjects including communication styles, business management, computer science, graphic design, psychology, sociology, philosophy, accounting, economics, finance, and medical specialties. I am proficient in APA and MLA styles.
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
Reading and creative writing are my passions, but I also enjoy hiking, camping, and fishing. I have a fantastic, energetic, adorable 4 year old Chesapeake lab mix named Silsby and we spend a lot of time outside where I get to toss a ball for her so she can bring it back to me, endlessly. :)
