Editing and Fact Checking
Melcher Media Publishing Slate
The Ask: Conduct thorough fact checking for titles across a variety of genres, including fashion, entertainment, travel and science.
The Approach: Conducted research and compiled extensive backup of findings, queries and changes, placing supreme importance on the confirmation of all information with several credible sources. Investigated the accuracy of every distinct point and assertion, from fashion credits to complex scientific facts.
The Results: Based on the quality of my work, I was assigned to lead fact checking efforts for high-profile projects like An Inconvenient Truth, the companion book to Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary, and the full HBO Publishing Program.
