Jillian Magalaner Stone

Editor, Copy Editor, Proofreader



Need an editor, copy editor, or proofreader? Using my decades of editorial experience, I will evaluate your project, recommend an appropriate treatment, and provide you with a beautifully edited product.




After years as an editor at Fodor's Travel Publications, I hung out my freelancer shingle and began editing many different works, from self-help to fiction and literary criticism, from books and book proposals to brochures, newsletters, and websites. The common denominator: Ideas expressed in words clearly and powerfully.

Born and raised in Manhattan, I now live in South Orange, NJ.



Jillian is an amazingly detailed, careful editor. She is fast, professional, loyal, and goes beyond what's easy to get the best copy for TheCovey. I trust her implicitly, and let her jump in and save my grammatical bacon whenever I can (she probably had to edit this testimonial, too)!
---Lesley Jane Seymour, founder of CoveyClub and former editor in chief of Redbook, Marie Claire, and More magazines
Jillian is an excellent editor and thinker. She brings to the project a fine mind, a passion for details and an ability to get the work done on time. I always recommend her and use her on my own cookbooks.
---Linda West Eckhardt, James Beard--Award winning cookbook author
Jillian Magalaner Stone is a pleasure to work with, a true professional, and a dedicated partner in the creative process. 
Detail-oriented, focused and insightful, Jillian embodies it all as an editor, and she completes her work on time and with precision. 
---Maia Kumari Gilman, Author, Architect, Artist
Jillian Magalaner's publication of a travel guide geared toward travelers with disabilities in 1994 (revised in a new edition by Fodor's in 1996) was a landmark.
---Encyclopedia of Disability, by Gary L. Albrecht
