Leigh Westerfield, Ph.D.

I’m a versatile editor and published author who will read your writing with a sharp eye and share with you my expertise as a professor of literature and writing.

Fresh and original voices have found their way into the world of publishing in recent years. Never has there been a better time to express yourself in print. Every author needs a reader to provide feedback, and I can do that for you.

As your editor, I will:

  • Fine-tune your writing and polish out the errors.
  • Give you personalized suggestions to develop and enhance the content.
  • Offer you insights about audience. You’ll come away with a better
    sense of how to reach your readers.
  • Meet deadlines and keep you on track.
  • Improve your chances of publishing your manuscript.


Lynette Felber, Ph.D., former editor-in-chief
Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History

“Leigh is a meticulous, conscientious editor. Her keen eye, attention to detail, and broad cultural literacy make her the ideal editor for a wide range of projects. Leigh worked with me for five years on the editorial staff of Clio, a scholarly journal. To commend Leigh's work, one of our authors said that she was ‘amazed at the cleanness of this copy. I’ve never seen such well-edited proofs from any other journal with which I’ve worked; thanks.’ This is high praise indeed, and the kind of testimony I often received about Leigh’s careful, professional editing.”
