Sam is a very experienced writer and editor. His background in the humanities, specifically in literature, language, history, theory, fiction, and information studies makes him a rare and knowledgeable editor suited to many rhetorical writing situations. His editing technique is methodical and multifaceted. He takes on various perspectives as he edits, helping you to see your own work in terms of content as well as style. Sam edited my fiction and grant proposals. My fiction was published and I won the grant. He is also a fantastic editor because of his work in education as a university librarian, working with a range of students and faculty to meet individual needs and abilities. His experience with the digital humanities additionally makes him a resource for publishing in diverse forms of media. I could not have asked for a more thoughtful, rigorous, and personable editing session.
