About me

Proofreader and blogger Jan Arzooman

I am a proofreader, editor, blogger and social media marketer who lives in New York City. Publishing has been my life for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter and editor, a trade magazine writer and editor, a journal editor, a newsletter designer and writer, a social media manager, a book editor and proofreader, a marketing proofreader, and a blogger. 

My working style is to keep things simple. When I’m editing or proofreading, I take a light touch in order to keep the author’s voice while maintaining style and consistency. When I’m blogging, I tell a story in plain language, avoiding biz speak or industry jargon that outsiders might not understand. I work closely with my clients to understand their needs and their audience’s needs. 

Whatever the job, I make sure it is correct, easy to read and understand, and that it conveys the desired message or tells a good story.
