Ann Greenberger

Ann edits academic papers, research papers, and book manuscripts.  She uses her more than 25 years of experience to provide everything from a light copy edit to developmental editing.  She has a Master’s degree in English, five years experience teaching university writing and composition, and many years as an editor for higher education book publishing.

She brings an experienced view to every manuscript. She approaches each manuscript from multiple perspectives–through the eyes of the reader, the writer, and the publisher. She responds to each author’s self-described challenges and edits each piece for grammar, adherence to APA/MLA/Chicago style, and addresses key issues of organization and purpose.

Subject areas include education, social sciences, humanities, public health, business, and more.

Ann earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa Writers Workshop where she studied poetry. She taught college English, composition, and literature courses at universities in Boston. Ann was managing editor of the literary magazine, AGNI and received arts council grants for three consecutive years to lead Life Stories writing workshops for adults in Somerville, Massachusetts.

After many years in Boston, Ann moved to Corvallis, Oregon.  When she isn’t editing a manuscript, Ann likes to be outside in one of the many Corvallis parks walking with her poodle.
