Los Angeles Review of Books

I was involved with the Los Ange­les Review of Books as ear­ly as the fall of 2010, before its launch, as an Edi­to­r­i­al Assis­tant.

In Novem­ber 2012, I came on as a Copy Edi­tor, and the next month I was put in charge as Copy Desk Chief. I remained in that role until April 2014.

As Copy Desk Chief, in addi­tion to dai­ly copy­edit­ing, fact check­ing, and proof­read­ing of dig­i­tal and print prop­er­ties, I:

  • Revised and expand­ed the house style guide
  • Cre­at­ed a track­ing sys­tem that resolved pre­vi­ous inef­fi­cien­cies
  • Built a robust and respect­ed team of remote copy edi­tors
