Hello! I'm Jennifer Agee, a freelance copy editor, project manager, and writer.


Why Hire an Editor?

You’re writing for a reason.

You have something to communicate, and you want your readers to get the message—from first impression, to full comprehension, to call to action.

As your editor, I'll make sure your text is error-free, informative, and persuasive.


Voice

From marketing copy to academic research, there are a thousand ways to write for an audience. I’ll help ensure your voice—and your message—is heard.

Clarity

Problems like passive voice and wordiness can challenge any writer—and confuse any reader. I’ll make sure each sentence is active and clear.

Style

Build trust with your readers. I'll refine essential style and branding details while ensuring consistency.

Accuracy

Did you double-check your math, the spelling of that unusual name, and the phone number you want readers to call? I’ll check the facts.

I've been copy editing since 2001. My specialties are investing, business intelligence, and theology, but I can edit anything.

I've also worked as a production manager to coordinate editorial, design, marketing, and sales teams. I developed and implemented a custom content project management solution for a fast-paced daily blog. As a managing editor, I've developed author relationships, set print budgets, created style guides, written marketing copy, optimized SEO, and more.

How can I help you?

Humans are composed of poetic tissues as surely as physical ones. Our identities, worldviews, longings—all are drawn and developed from the unique relationships and texts we encounter and incorporate. We collect and imagine stories and creatively build them into the tale of ourselves.
But each of these personal mythologies is irrevocably lost at death—unless it is true, as Christianity claims, that God raises the dead.
Systematic Mythology: Imagining the Invisible studies the ways in which we make meaning. It argues that God must be the ultimate subject of every person’s essential myth, so that Christ may redeem and resurrect our stories as well as our bodies. Systematic mythology calls us to consciously and creatively participate in the story God is telling through our cosmos and its inhabitants: a story in which Christ is all, and in all.

A Witness: The Haiti Earthquake, a Song, Death, and Resurrection (Editor)

I edited the manuscript for length and clarity while preserving the author's voice; checked facts; wrote indices and other front/back matter, including promotional abstracts; applied house style; tagged and prepared the manuscript for layout; and coordinated production rounds with the publisher.
