Tyler Loveless


As an editor and researcher, I work closely with authors to develop budding manuscripts, craft compelling book proposals, comb through archives, and clean up final drafts.

Now, I've partnered with Evelyn Duffy—longtime research assistant and in-house editor to Bob Woodward—at Open Boat Editing to offer team-based research and editorial services.

"I have no words to express how much my paper was advanced thanks to Tyler's fantastic editing and insightful reading!"

I've edited book proposals for best-selling authors, collaborated on multiple books now in production, and currently serve as an editor at the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Additionally, my own research has appeared in academic journals, edited volumes, and online magazines.

I hold a B.A. and M.A. in Philosophy from George Washington University, where I was a Loker-Rice Graduate Fellow, and I have completed summer programs on Critical Theory at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales and Birkbeck, University of London. Prior to editing professionally, I advised multinational clients on labor rights developments for Sorini, Samet & Associates, and I led the communications team for three years at the Institute for International Economic Policy. Originally from Mississippi, I live and work in Washington, D.C.



As a "full stack" editor, I support authors at all stages of the writing process by providing background research, coaching, line and copy edits, and comprehensive revision plans. Together, we can work on improving textual ambiguity, thematic patterns, argument structure, and more.

Over the past six years, I've worked with clients to develop and improve manuscripts, book proposals, dissertations, journal articles, writing samples, newsletters, and website copy. For questions about your specific editorial or research needs, email me at the address below. My services include:


I'll add depth and context to your project with historical archives, genealogical records, literature reviews, newspaper clippings, annotated bibliographies, and fact-checking services.

Developmental Editing:

We will work together to shape (or re-shape) the foundations of your text, including audience, argument, theme, structure, tone, mood, and other big-picture questions.

Line Editing:

Send me your latest draft, and I will provide detailed comments on paragraph and sentence structure, clarity, concision, organization, word choice, and rhythm.

Copy Editing:

I will review your draft for technical errors related to spelling, grammar, punctuation, and other writing mechanics while ensuring your work reads as smoothly as possible.


I'll meet with you regularly, one-on-one, throughout the life of your project, providing support, guidance, and structure during each stage of the writing process.

My rates are project-specific and may depend on a number of factors, including type of service requested, condition of materials, turnaround time, etc. For a good representation of the typical cost of editorial and research work, see this rates sheet, published annually by the Editorial Freelancers Association.
