About Letta Page

Founding Associate Editor and Producer (Former) The Society Pages Senior Managing Editor (Former) Contexts Magazine Independent Academic Editor and Writing Consultant In Twitter terms, I self-present as a disarmingly earnest editor, translator of academia, portmanteuse, and domesticated roustabout. More professionally, I might say: I am a jargon-slayer and book doula for hire. The founding associate editor and producer of The Society Pages and former senior managing editor of Contexts magazine (the public outreach journal of the American Sociological Association), I have more than two decades' experience in academic editing across a range of disciplines. I've edited and written copy for publications from Oxford University Press, Routledge, Taylor & Francis, W.W. Norton, the University of Chicago Press, Cambridge University Press, and many others, along with dozens of journals. As a sort of fun "palate cleanser" (trust me, when you're editing books on neoliberalism and genocide, always good to have a fallback), I write copy for organizations like Stand Up! Records. I also have a background in the visual arts and was a founder of First Amendment Arts (now CoExhibitions) in Minneapolis, MN. I hold degrees in history and classical studies from Boston University and an art degree from the University of Minnesota. pagesmithing.com Click here to read my Friday Roundup posts on The Editors' Desk.
