About

I have been a journalist for more than 20 years, reporting, copy editing and leading special projects and a 180,000-circulation Sunday edition. I now specialize in editing business communications and scholarly work, especially in the field of educational policy. Recent projects have included the AQIP Systems Portfolio college accreditation report for a community college, research papers for scholarly publications, briefings for a school policy think tank, chapters of a national nonfiction bestseller, and an early-childhood education website. I spent most of my career as a reporter and editor in Michigan, and I now live in Columbus, Ohio. I also answer questions and post daily editing tips on Twitter as EditorMark.
