Patty Smith, Foolproof Copyediting

Welcome! I’m Patty Smith, and I’m a freelance copyeditor based in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley. I’ve been working with publishers and individual authors since 2008. When you’ve done your best with your manuscript but feel a professional touch would give you the edge, my copyediting service can provide you with the confidence of knowing your document is completely up to publishing house standards.

I can work with all aspects of fiction and nonfiction. I prefer to edit documents in Microsoft Word, but I can also edit in Adobe Acrobat or work on hard copy. All work is completed remotely.

I am proficient with The Chicago Manual of Style (used for book publishing) and The AP Stylebook (used for magazines, newspapers, and web content) and would be happy to learn other style guides as needed.
