    Note that if you are looking to pitch me for the gaming section at Women Write About Comics, you should email me at sidequest.naseem@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you!

    Science editing

    Are you trying to decode the latest article in Nature Neuroscience? Maybe you've been writing about a new genome editing technique and want to make sure you got it right. Perhaps you've written about integrating psychology studies into educational practices. My focuses are neuroscience, human health/physiology, molecular/cellular biology, genetics, and animal studies, but contact me to see if I might be the right editor for the job!

    Line and copy editing

    Done with a second or third draft? Need someone to check for word choice, grammar, redundancy, and clarity? I work quickly and respect your authorial voice and style so your work can be clean, tight, and within word limits.

    Proofreading and indexing

    Last minute checks? Ready to go to print, but just want one more pair of eyes? Don't feel like indexing or double-checking your references? (Having written academic papers, I know how that feels!) I can do these tasks for you so that you can send your manuscript off with peace of mind.

    Beta reading, manuscript critique, and sensitivity reads

    Have you written a novel, a memoir, or some other kind of manuscript? Maybe you need an unbiased opinion on the pacing, plot development, character arcs, and overall story. As a writer, I understand exactly the type of feedback needed from a workshop at any stage of a story, and I can work with you to shape your manuscript for querying. Are you writing marginalized characters? I also do sensitivity reads about a variety of topics; please contact me to chat more.

  • How It Works

    Editing with me is easy! I view editing as a teaching method and a two-way process. It's my job to teach you about what I'm doing and why, and it's your job to teach me about your style and what you need. I want you to come away from the editing experience feeling like a stronger, more confident writer.
