Hello! My name is Leah Wohlfarth, and I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Humanities, which just means world literature. I love to read, and proof read. I was always editing papers for my friends, and classmates, during college, which naturally lead me to my editing internship. I interned in the editing department at Andrews McMeel publishing in Kansas City, Missouri.
I am a freelance editor. Below is my editing experience.
My responsibilities include completing various tasks needed from the editors such as; title management editing, creating acquisitions memos, book and blog research, as well as proof reading books, e-books, comics, press releases, and puzzles prior to printing.
I do also have experience copy editing manuscripts for memoirs, fiction, children's fiction, cook books, and puzzles.
I have been through the process of publishing a book, as well as possible marketing strategies for proposed books.

"Leah is editing a previously published book for me and has found corrections my former publisher's editor missed! Another freelance editor from a group also missed important corrections. Leah is efficient and thorough. Accurate corrections and wonderful suggestions. I will have Leah edit my future books!"
