Dacia Ray

Copy Editor - Seattle, WA

I am a freelance copy editor with over 15 years of experience working on a variety of projects from magazines to books to corporate websites. In addition to copy editing, I have a background as both a journalist and project manager at several publications, start-ups, and design firms. Whether you are looking for a final proofread or an experienced eye to make your copy sing, I can help you. I can edit in Word, InDesign, Google Docs, or HTML with or without version control (Git).
