Hi! I’m Jaime Brockway.
If you’re looking for a copy editor who will make your content shine and make your life easier through a seamless collaboration, then you’ve come to the right place.
As a well-practiced editor with more than seven years’ experience, I’ve got your back when it comes to clean, professional copy.
Why is copyediting important?
Copyediting is quality assurance.
No matter what type of content you are releasing to the world—a website, a blog or a newsletter, a white paper, branded or sponsored content, company literature, a book, an online course—you need a copy editor. Nothing says unprofessional and untrustworthy like confusing syntax and grammatical errors.
But I get it—with everything else you have on your plate, sometimes editing your content falls by the wayside in the rush to share it with the world. That’s where I come in!
My purpose is to elevate your content by editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and syntax—and so much more. I eradicate errors while maintaining your brand voice so that readers can feel the full impact of your words without being distracted by weird phrasing or misplaced punctuation.
Perhaps you’re a forward-thinking freelancer who is constantly pushing out new projects. Maybe you’re a large company or organization about to release a white paper or cross-platform marketing campaign. Or perhaps you’re a small business launching a website and a newsletter. Whoever you are, I can contribute to the unwavering high reputation of your brand.
More about my history:
I’ve been a professional copy editor since 2014, when I moved to NYC without a job because I wanted to work in the publishing capital of the world.
Soon I was freelancing for The Wall Street Journal Magazine and various Hearst magazines. Then I began working full-time job as a copy editor at the weekly print magazine Time Out New York. In two years, I worked my way up to national copy chief of TONY and seven quarterly Time Out magazines in other U.S. cities.
In January 2018, I again began freelancing in order to work with my ideal clients. Here’s a sample of works I’ve copyedited:
*sponsored content for Fortune 100 companies through Atlantic Brand Partners (The Atlantic‘s sponsored-content arm)
*brochures for nonprofits like Manny Cantor Center in NYC
*print and online magazines such as Well+Good
*manuscripts for independent authors
*case studies for a major cloud services provider
If you’d like to collaborate, I’d love to hear from you.
