Editor

In 2019 and for the foreseeable future, I am not available for editing work. 

A decade of journalism and communications work, an MFA, memberships in two long-standing writers’ groups, and a commitment to a collaborative, organizing approach all inform my editing. I’m happy to help your work reach your goal, whether it needs a gut renovation, a final proofread, or anything in between.

Some kind words about my editing…

Dania is a superb editor with great instincts for making sentences more direct, clean, and powerful. Whether a piece of writing is in bad shape or almost there, she makes it better. –Mark Engler, author of  How to Rule the World and co-author of This is An Uprising

Dania has that rare ability to work well both independently and on a team. She is always aware of the overall picture, well-organized, a thoughtful supervisor and an insightful facilitator. Dania’s writing is just like her: honest, funny, committed, passionate and a fusion of many different flavors into one. — Nicole Lisa, translator, editor, novelist

Dania is a master at spotting where a manuscript can be cut — she excels at identifying what’s essential and what is not. She’s also particularly good at cleaning up prose while maintaining the author’s voice. She’s got a quick eye for errors and cumbersome constructions, but knows how to impose order without imposing formality on lively writing. –Peter Hogness, former editor, Clarion
