Anna Sweet Maynard

I am an IPEd-accredited editor, whose passion for words and the English language inspires me to develop beautiful, unique written materials. Through my degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, I developed skills in editing, writing and researching for different genres. My subsequent employment has allowed me to enjoy the different worlds of freelance and corporate editorial work.

Oct 2015 - Present: Freelance Editor
I am happy to provide editing services (structural editing, copyediting, and/or proofreading) or advice on any publishing project. I have previously worked on creative non-fiction manuscripts, cookbooks, academic journal articles, and technical reports. I am confident writing or updating website content, and creating style guides for businesses. I am always ready and willing to take on new challenges.

Mar 2016 - Present: Technical editor
I review and edit engineering documents including: technical reports, proposals, memos and journal articles. I transform jargon-filled, unwieldy sentences into plain English, to improve readability.

At Chil3, I edited and proofread book proofs and online content to ensure they were cohesive, on-brand and free of mistakes, and I created corporate branding documents for circulation among new and existing clients.
