Jeanette Shaw

I work with writers to develop, refine, and position their work for publication. I offer a range of editorial services for writers, agents, and publishers, from proposal writing and line editing to consulting, ghostwriting, copyediting, and proofreading.

I was an editor for twelve years at Penguin Random House, where I worked in nonfiction categories including self-help, natural living, beauty, popular reference, travel, food writing, business motivation, career development, relationships, pop culture, and memoir. As a copyeditor and proofreader I have worked with a variety of publishers and private clients on a range of fiction including romance, science fiction, fantasy, young adult, picture books, and general fiction. Examples of my work can be found on the Projects page.
