Green Editing

Why Use J Green Editing?

Jennifer Green, Editor


A graduate of the University of Chicago Editing Certificate program and a career educator, I have spent over twenty years helping students hone their craft and find their voices. I enjoy reading for work and for pleasure, and I love helping authors strengthen their writing and storytelling.  I first found my love of editing when a friend asked if I'd read her most recent novel manuscript--I loved the challenge of delving into her fictional world! My background in literature and composition allows me to approach each new manuscript from multiple perspectives including reader, writer, and instructor. I know how stories are put together and how they engage readers. The addition of freelance editing was a natural progression in my personal and professional growth.

In addition to BAs in psychology and English from North Carolina State University and Meredith College and an MA in English Studies from the University of Nottingham in Nottingham, England, I earned my Editing certificate with a specialization in Developmental Editing from the University of Chicago Graham School. I am also a member of the EFA (Editorial Freelancers Association) and Publications Barista for Fictional Cafe. 

I live in coastal North Carolina with my husband where we start numerous projects around the house--some of which are finished.  We love traveling and visits with our adult(ish) daughter.
