EVERETT ROBERTS

Freelance Editor

Stephen King once said you cannot be a good writer if you're not a good reader. I believe, however, that you can't be a good writer without a good editor. The right editor can sharpen even the most mundane message, hone your argument, and transform your writing from good to great.


If you're stuck, if you need perspective, or if you just need another pair of eyes on your work, you've come to the right place.

 

A BIT ABOUT ME

Ever/Editing

I am a trilingual Washington, D.C.-based Editor with a deep love of short stories, literary fiction, the Great Books, and Wang Kar Wai movies. When not learning Cantonese, German, or Hebrew, I'm reading and editing, and will forever wish that I had the panache to have written Gary Shteyngart's Super Sad True Love Story myself.
