My editorial experience includes journalism, public information for a state environmental agency, freelance environmental writing, academic editing and newsletter development, and seven years of teaching writing and literature on the college level. I have a BA in English from Carleton College, Master of Liberal Studies from the University of Minnesota, and a PhD in English from the University of North Dakota. I love helping graduate students craft their thesis or dissertation into their finest work for full recognition and am conversant with MLA, APA, Chicago and Turabian styles. I have several years' experience teaching ESL to international students at the university level, much of which involved helping them with writing in English. I also greatly enjoy working with non-academic kinds of writing and writers and have broad experience with nonfiction, especially journalism. One of my strengths as a writer and editor is making difficult, technical, abstruse or complicated topics easier to understand by the general reader, while retaining all the important information.

I have been freelancing for more than twenty years, for both university and trade presses as well as individual authors. In my previous incarnation I was a newspaper editor at metro dailies, including Newsday and the San Jose Mercury News. I brought a number of strengths from journalism to book editing: speed, a reverence for deadlines (I have a clock in my head), and an eagle eye for problems—authors marvel at my ability to catch discrepancies, inconsistencies, and redundancies often hundreds of pages apart. My motto is “Never give a critic a free lunch.”

I’ve been devoted to the pursuit of clean, clear writing for more than 20 years. B.A. in English, Oberlin College. My editing career began in magazines (McCall’s and Woman’s Day) and I spent many years in the fast-paced, deadline-driven world of corporate communications. My eye for detail has been tested most recently with a demanding project: editing and proofreading the "Bread in Five Minutes a Day" cookbook series (MacMillan, New York). Current clients include the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Kirkus Media, BoxOffice Media, the American Craft Council, and the University of Minnesota. I'm well-versed in the Chicago Manual of Style and the Associated Press Stylebook, or I can work with your own in-house style guide. I provide exacting attention to detail and on-time turnaround.

As a member of PEN, I have one goal for your great writing, and that is to make it even better. I particularly enjoy working with speculative fiction and dissertations. I use The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. and Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th ed. as my style guides. For dissertations, I apply APA, 6th ed. I can also serve as your substantive editor, making many helpful suggestions about language, clarity, and stylistic choices. And if your manuscript needs even more assistance, I can put on my developmental editor's hat to look at aim, content, and structure. I have a BA in English, doctoral study in experimental social psychology, and advanced study in editing. I give painstaking attention to detail, have a finely tuned eye and ear for word choice and sentence structure, and am committed to clarity. I work at the level you need, always with respect for your voice. If you provide me a sample of your manuscript, I will do a free mini-evaluation. Let's talk about your project, and together we will get clear on exactly what you would like me to do.

As a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America and the Horror Writers Association, I have edited over one hundred books over the last eight years. Having worked on dozens of manuscripts for publishers such as PS Publishing and DarkFuse, my mission is to help indie authors write books as compelling as those I edit for professional authors, a number of whom have won or been nominated for the HUGO, NEBULA, and BRAM STOKER awards. I hold an MFA in creative writing from the University of Montana and a BA in English from the University of Texas, and I am the author of books published by Black Lawrence Press, Unsolicited Press, Bedouin Books, and Binary Press. In 2009 I was the writer-in-residence at the Montana Artists Refuge, and in 2011 I received the annual literary award from Emrys Journal.

My normal editing procedure after talking to an author and determining that the project is one I might want to undertake is to read the first chapter or two, the first story or essay in a collection, or the synopsis of a screenplay and, if I decide to proceed, to edit that material at no charge. This accomplishes several things: it confirms for me that this is a potentially good fit for both the author and myself, and it shows the author how I'm going to edit his or her words and structure, etc.

It will also give me a good estimate of how long it will take me to edit the whole project. The last point is important because although I charge by the hour ($25/hr.), I give an author a maximum GUARANTEE up front. If the project takes longer than I've estimated, it's my problem not his/hers. My LinkedIn and Facebook pages have pertinent professional info, and I'll be glad to provide strong positive references upon request.

Here are a few comments from clients: "Dick Croy has been not only a tireless agent for my books but also an invaluable editor. I am not a novice writer, yet Dick has been able to weed out some pesky bad habits of mine, generating a cleaner, more coherent manuscript. More than simply line editing, though, Dick has also given me good insight into content relative to plot and character. All around, he’s been a great literary partner." John Kachuba.

"I have used several editors over the course of my career as a novelist and none of them compares to Dick Croy. The mark of a good literary editor is the ability to intuit the author’s style of prose, sentence structure and rhythm, thereby enhancing the work rather than altering it. This is Dick’s strength and the author’s gain." Nancy Baker.

"Stephen King once said, 'To write is human, to edit - divine.' Dick Croy's support and encouragement throughout the sometimes painful process of editing my first novel was first-rate, I might even say 'divine.' He took my rough precious gemstone and polished it to fit a king." Andrew Scott Jackson

I have a diverse background in the publishing industry and have five years of experience working for small publishing presses, local newspapers, literary journals, and online magazines and blogs. I mainly work with the Chicago Manual of Style and can adapt easily to various house style guides. I have an eye for detail and organization within both small and large works, and I enjoy improving overall structure and flow of a book or essay, as well as digging into each paragraph and sentence to make sure your work is clear, cohesive, and audience-friendly.

UNFORTUNATELY, I AM CURRENTLY UNABLE TO ACCEPT NEW PROJECTS/CLIENTS. However, I am always happy to answer questions. I've copyedited and coded many manuscripts, from ESL workbooks to an oil field text; on topics ranging from veterinary medicine, maternity nursing, cytology, psychology, history, and political science to training and software manuals and cookbooks. And last, but not least, I've gained a great deal of experience over the last 16 years, serving as a proofreader/copyeditor for advertising collateral. I'm a quick learner and detail- and deadline-oriented. I am interested and experienced in many topics not listed here.

I am a detail-oriented editor with both in-house and freelance experience covering a variety of content. I've worked with texts of fewer than 1,000 words and over 100,000, with casual online pieces and formal history books, and with a wide range of subjects. My clients include publishers, packagers, self-publishing and traditionally publishing authors, marketing and PR agencies, nonprofits, industry professionals, and more. My primary style reference is the Chicago Manual of Style (16th or 17th edition), and I also have experience with AP Style as well as numerous in-house and project-specific styles, both working with them and creating them myself from scratch. I am a graduate of the Denver Publishing Institute program and have foreign-language skills in French (business level) and Japanese (conversational). In addition to my freelance work, I am the senior editor of Twin Cities Geek (www.twincitiesgeek.com), a Minnesota-based news and culture site.
