About

CLAIRE MEIROWITZ, President/Owner, Professional Editing Services:

For the past 18 years, I have been a freelance copyeditor, proofreader and fact-checker for print, e-letters, blogs and Web materials for a nationwide and international client base.

Current and past clients include Ziff-Davis Enterprise, QuinStreet, United Business Media/UBMTech (formerly CMP Publications), CSC, SANS Institute, IBM, HP, Intel, Microsoft, HCL, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Wakefern Foods, St. John’s University, Yeshiva University, Astoria Federal Savings Bank (now Astoria Bank), Urban Green Council and several websites. I edit the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition’s newsletter on a pro bono basis.

I am also an award-winning writer and publication editor who co-founded and edited two journals in labor relations, and newsletters in education. For 13 years, I directed publications and community relations for the State University of New York/College at Old Westbury, where I oversaw production of more than 400 publications annually and received the State University Chancellor’s Award for excellence in professional service. The Long Island chapter of International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) named me Communicator of the Year in 2009.

I co-wrote a bimonthly online column for IABC advising 15,000 professional communicators around the world how to improve their writing and editing. A book I co-authored, The Truth About the New Rules of Business Writing, was published in 2010 by Financial Times Press and remains in print. I also served as co-editor of Strategies for Impasse Resolution, Baywood Publishers, 1992.

As a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, IABC-Charlotte, N.C. chapter, Editorial Freelancers Association, and the American Copy Editors Society, I keep up to date on my profession. My editing expertise is primarily with the Associated Press (AP) style.
