About Me

I’m Anna, an editor and writer based in Baltimore, Maryland. I enjoy working with writers to improve their work, whether it’s through copy editing or developmental editing. I’m currently a proofreader at a financial-newsletter company, but I also have experience editing sports news, academic papers, an alumni magazine, a memoir, and an alternative newsweekly. My writing experience covers a wide range of copy, including theater and restaurant reviews, investigative news stories, and profiles of engineering research.

I’m also interested in improving the ways journalists write about sexual violence. I presented a session called Responsible Writing and Editing on Sexual Violence at the American Copy Editors Society’s 2016 conference, and have given similar presentations to local college classes and newspapers.

When I’m not working, I like exploring Baltimore, reading books about food history, and taking pictures of my cats. I’m available to freelance. I tweet at @annamccachren.
