I produce high-caliber work in the following areas: content development, developmental editing, substantive editing, nonfiction writing, rewriting, copy-editing, photo-researching, and proofreading. I have worked on numerous types of publications, including nonfiction and fiction books, journal articles, dissertations, proposals, white papers, technical manuals, catalogs, DVD content, marketing and public relations materials, and websites.
I can focus on discrete assignments or manage entire projects. No area of publishing is off-limits, from supervising creative teams and liaising with production staff and printers to critiquing layout and design elements and working with photographs and illustrations.
My clients include the National Academies Press, the Institute of Medicine, The New England Journal of Medicine, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard School of Public Health, National Jewish Health, the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Chandler Chicco Companies, Imagine Publishing, as well as fiction and nonfiction writers, academics, and other professionals.
Here is what my two of my previous employers have to say about me:
“Mary Kalamaras is an exceptional writer and editor and also is superb at managing content-oriented projects. She worked on some of our most successful projects when she was at the National Academies Press.”
--Barbara Pope, Executive Director for Communications and the National Academies Press, The National Academies
