Attending the ACES annual conference in St. Petersburg, Florida. March 2017

I’m Sandra McVearry, and Artistic Explorations Publishing, LLC is my company. I’m devoted to the exploration of creative expression through written language and artistic media. I am a provider of editorial and content writing services. Artistic Explorations is also my Indie-publishing imprint.

I hold a BA and an MA in English from the California State University at Sacramento and have several years of experience teaching writing at both the secondary and college levels. I am trained in editing through the University of California–San Diego’s specialized certificate in copy editing program. I’m currently pursing an MA in Science Writing from Johns Hopkins University.

I am versed in Chicago Style, MLA Style, and in AMA Style. Editing reference lists is a particular love of mine. Whether I’m medical copyediting or creating original content, my goal is to serve the future readers by ensuring the document communicates what it needs to as clearly as possible.

I understand what it’s like to need an editor or a proofreader in order to produce a professional quality manuscript.

I believe that editing and proofreading are integral parts of preparing a manuscript for publication. If you’re looking for a copyedit, fact checking, original writing, or a final proofreading, I can meet your needs.

I’m a member in good standing of the following professional organizations:
