Hello! My name is Kellye McBride. I’m a freelance writer, proofreader, and copyeditor living in Portland, Oregon.

If you’re interested in collaborating on a project, start here. I offer several different kinds of services, including professional editing, copywriting, and website design. For more information about my professional background, visit my about me page.

In my spare time, I have a side business selling vintage Halloween masks and decorations, which I’ve been collecting for about three years.

Wondering where my blog went? All of my previous posts are safely tucked away in the archives.  Interested in working with me? Contact me here.



I have a hard time with self-promotion, but Kellye transformed my web copy from drab to professional, snappy, and compelling. She immediately understood my business and my customers, and she truly overdelivered with lots of useful suggestions and ideas. She was very responsive, meticulous, and easy to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Kellye again.

Kellye McBride Editing is really very good. She is editing my Sherwood History book and is doing all the things that my old certified editor did. She is very professional, does not waste time, and is very communicative. Those are great traits to have for an editor. She has sharp eyes, but also questions things she is unsure about. That is another great editor trait. I highly recommend her.
