Blue Flower Editing

Hi! I’m Antonn Park, a Cambridge-based editor with five years of editorial experience. I hold an MS in crime and justice studies with a concentration in victimology, a BS in economics and a minor in political science, and a copyediting certificate from UC San Diego Extension. I’m also a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (and manage communications for the Boston chapter), ACES: The Society for Editing, American Economic Association, and Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.

After getting my master's degree in 2009, I began working with small nonprofits and businesses. I soon realized I had a knack for editing and fell in love with helping writers express themselves clearly and confidently. I believe that all writers have something important to say. My job as an editor is not to point out mistakes and judge but to ensure that you, as an author, present your best work.

I’m experienced in editing a wide range of material for economics, including articles, papers, reports, and books; reports, briefs, grant proposals, transcripts, and presentations; and training material, business proposals, and company profiles. I’m also familiar with several style manuals, such as Associated Press, Chicago Manual of Style, American Psychological Association, and can work with any house style.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 6-year-old Brussels Griffon.

Antonn edited a study that I co-authored on the politics of education reform. I was really impressed by the depth of feedback and editing she offered, both the line edits as well as some more substantive feedback. I learned a lot from simply reviewing her work.

I had the pleasure to work with Antonn in my role as a chief editor for the fall 2016 issue of Intelligent Risk magazine.

The task of putting together the issue was quite challenging, as we had to collaborate intensely with multiple authors while meeting a very tight deadline. While I was managing the overall workflow and the professional standards of the publication, Antonn was the editor for the issue. During a short period of time, we had to go through multiple cycles with the different authors to bring the articles to the professional and technical standards of the publication.

Antonn was a highly professional and trustworthy partner in this challenging endeavor. She made commitments and she kept them by doing a lot of work, doing it thoroughly, and doing it quickly. I would highly recommend Antonn as an editor to any professional publication.

Antonn edited true crime articles for my private investigations blog for over a year. The quality of her work was always excellent, and she consistently delivered on time. Antonn is also an excellent communicator and was more than willing to go above and beyond with everything. Antonn is creative, thoughtful, and professional. I would easily recommend Antonn for proofreading without hesitation. You will not be disappointed.

She did an amazing job! It’s always a pleasure working with her.
