Hi, my name is Mike De Socio.

I’m an award-winning, independent journalist and editor.

My career has put me on both sides of the editing equation. In addition to my deep experience reporting and writing, I have years of experience in both digital and print editing.

That means I have a sharp eye for copy, a fast hand for working with breaking news and passion for collaborating with writers. I also know my way around a content management system, especially when it comes to working with photos, videos and other multimedia.


My editing services include copy editing and developmental editing for a range of content, from news and feature stories to email and social media copy.

I also offer proofreading for materials to make sure they’re tightened up before they’re sent out the door.

I’ve done editing work for American City Business Journals, Liberal Education magazine and NPR, among others. I’m known for being organized, efficient and thorough in my work. You can view some examples of past editing work below.

Albany Business Review

As the digital editor of a regional business publication, I worked with reporters to edit news and feature stories on a daily basis ahead of publication on our website.

Liberal Education

I edited a column in Liberal Education, the magazine of the American Association of Colleges and Universities, about how professors can use writing as an act of reflection to improve their teaching skills.


The Daily Free Press

As editor-in-chief of The Daily Free Press in Boston, I edited all daily web articles and weekly print content. During my tenure as editor, we were named Best All-Around Newspaper in our region by the Society of Professional Journalists.
