Hello and welcome. I’m Ariel Kroon and I’m an independent scholar and editor specializing in editing and proofing academic works, with a particular focus on the humanities. I am specifically interested in essays, articles and research projects that offer a critical appraisal or analyses of media (particularly speculative/science fiction and solarpunk or adjacent topics) and social issues through a lens of feminist, queer, affect, or ecocritical theory.

Academic publishing can be an arduous process, and the “publish or perish” imperative can be exhausting for graduate students, postdocs, and non-tenured and tenured faculty alike. Whether you are working on an article, chapter, proposal, essay, blog post, or other web content, I can help bolster your confidence in your own ability to research, write, and deliver polished and publishable copy. You can be the most brilliant researcher in your field and yet if you are unable to communicate clearly and in a way that is easily understandable, that will not matter.

I have 10+ years of writing and editing experience in academia; I also have experience working with multilingual writers to polish their spoken and written expression of English, and have been employed as a nonfiction editor for various online publications.

I offer structural (developmental), stylistic and copy editing, as well as proofreading. Visit Work with me for more detailed information about the services I offer, and contact me through the form on this site and we’ll discuss your project further.

I currently live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Haudenosaunee, and Anishinaabe peoples; whose land are you on? Find out at native-land.ca.
