About

Karen Twelves

I write engaging copy for websites, emails, Kickstarter campaigns and convention programs, adjusting tone and style based on author and audience.

I provide editing services at a variety of levels:
· Proofreading (error correction, formatting and layout accuracy, style guide adherence)
· Line editing (sentence clarity and thematic tone, provide fact-checking, create style sheets)
· Developmental (stylistic consistency and organization, provide art direction as needed)

I collaborate with authors, layout artists, indexers and project managers throughout production to meet strict deadlines.
