Poppy and Hattie


Hi there, I'm Alana Dunn, the owner of Regent Square Editing. I'm glad you're here!

I'm an academic line editor and copyeditor specializing in publications in the humanities, though I also have experience with fiction, poetry, and prose. I work to help writers eliminate errors and polish their prose without altering their voice or style. I particularly enjoy working with early-career faculty who are finishing their first or second book. You can see what writers have said about working with me on my testimonials page, as well as many of the projects I've been a part of in my portfolio.

Since 2009, I have served as the copyeditor for Bull City Press. I'm also a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

When I'm not editing, I'm most likely:

  • cooking Korean or Chinese food—some of my favorites are doenjang jjigae and beef chow fun;

  • watering my 40+ houseplants; or

  • cuddling my rescue guinea pigs, Pippy and Hattie (Pippy is the Chicago style enthusiast; Hattie is the skeptic).

Now that you know a bit about me, I'd love to learn more about you and your work. Get in touch today!
