Hi there! My name’s John Searcy. I’m a freelance copyeditor and general word-wrangler with more than ten years of experience in the field.

I provide an array of freelance editorial services for the book publishing industry, including copyediting, proofreading, developmental editing, fact checking, writing, and Americanization. I have worked on a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction projects for the adult and children’s markets, by authors ranging from Jack Kerouac to Leonard Susskind. I am deeply familiar with The Chicago Manual of Style.

In addition to my freelance work, I tutor students in writing and occasionally write the odd bit of fiction. My résumé is here.

If you’ve got a project you’d like me to work on, e-mail me at john@searcyedit.com.
