Brittany Clarke, editor and writer
Though she always enjoys variety in her editorial work, Brittany Clarke, editor and writer, has made her home in the editing of full-length book manuscripts. She spe- cializes in Christian books as well as books of other genres with uplifting, inspirational, and/or educational mes- sages. As of early 2017, Brittany has completed the editing of over 100 manuscripts, most of which are nonfiction.
In the years before she stepped into editorial work, Brittany taught English and creative writing at a high school level, cultivating her ability to not only demonstrate methods and rules but also communicate them effectively. She additionally tutored college students in the subjects of philosophy, theology, religious studies, and American literature and edited many theses and dissertations.
In accordance with being a self-proclaimed lifelong student and her desire to always bring her clients fresh insight, Brittany received her Poynter ACES Certificate in Advanced Editing in 2017, building upon her undergraduate education.
Brittany is deeply invested in the independent publishing community. She is an advocate of self-publishing authors and a big proponent of the belief that a shift in the publishing industry is coming—that the self-publishing author will continue to grow into a significant player in the market. Accordingly, she is a partner member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
Along her journey of spiritual growth, Brittany has attended Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world, and has taken (and continues to take) courses with Dallas Theological Seminary and Passion Global Institute. She currently works in her home church as a teacher in children’s ministry.
Brittany lives in her home state of Georgia with her husband, Brad, and four-legged kid, Emery.
Brittany's service and expertise exceeded every expectation. Her edits were insightful and meaningful. She was responsive, timely and available when I needed her. I would highly recommend her services. She's terrific!
Brittany did an excellent job! She is very dedicated. Dedicated is not the word. Primodedicated.
Brittany combined a solid understanding of the language with a unique sensitivity to my voice. She worked quickly, offered relevant suggestions and communicated clearly and effectively. Brittany delivered far more than expected.
Brittany did an outstanding job for me. She omitted a few things that didn't make good sense and corrected so many mistakes I made. The book turned out way better than I ever expected. If I ever write anything else, she will get the job from me again. Many, many thanks for a great job.
Words can't express how pleased I was!
Brittany did fantastic work on my first novel! I was so nervous in searching for a proofreader and met many that didn't quite get what I was looking for. When I gave Brittany my sample, I was blown away at her professionalism, communication, and turnaround. She was very thorough and felt at ease throughout the entire project! This lady works fast and I definitely look forward to working with her on my next book!
Brittany edited my first novel. She was great, it was a pleasure to work with her. She worked with me to achieve the best product for my fictional story. She kept her quoted timeline and I would use her again for any future editing projects.
I've written a few books and have worked with many editors over the years. I needed assistance on two novels that were edited but needed proofreading. Brittany went above and beyond on the proofreading, with a quick turnaround time. Her comments and corrections went deeper than simple proofreading and helped me understand the corrections and become a better writer. My manuscript was completely polished and publication-ready when she was finished. I'm looking forward to working with Brittany on my next book for both editing and proofreading. I HIGHLY recommend her for all of your editing needs, as she is exceptionally skilled and has a firm understand of grammar and the written word! You won't be disappointed with her work!
Brittany was able to understand my voice and her additions and takeaways were priceless. She became an important part of my work.
